These photos are taken in Paris Gare de l’est in 2009. This is a terminal to Strasbourg, Frankfurt, Zurich, Luxemburg and other cities. At that time, TGV Est was not fully completed.
Gare de l’est is historic building and many shops inside the station, fairly nice place. Surely, I can enjoy many kinds of trains including interesting long distance or diesel locos there. They already started to introduce hybrid trains to switch electric and diesel at that time.
At present, famous “TGV” brand is used widely as a name of French High-speed rail, but “InOui” or some other brands are also used. (I cannot keep up with the latest information in this regard.)
