Remarks & Notes 
After reaching the summit of the Guillerval grade, the BB 7216 runs on the flat section toward Orléans. This is also there that the 200 kph max allowed speed starts (the train on the picture is limited to 160 kph). The electric substation can be seen in the distance on the left. It is located right at the summit of the grade. The Guillerval grade used to be an obstacle for freight trains when the power of electric engines was low. Some trains got uncoupled rear end helpers in Etampes. This is now all forgotten.
