Remarks & Notes 
TGV 744, specially equipped for test runs on the new built 2nd section of the high speed line Paris - Strasbourg, derailed on November 14th near Eckwersheim (changeover to the old line Vendenheim - Strasbourg, where speed is limited to 160 km/h). Apparently this train was running too fast and derailed in a curve. Seven cars reached the adjacent bank of the Marne au Rhin Canal, the last tree cars (back end power unit included) dropped into the canal.

Some trains just have an especially futuristic look to them.
