This year, France is celebrating 40 years of the TGV. And will put the package on Friday, on the eve of European Heritage Days. Activities are thus planned in a dozen emblematic places in the history of the high-speed train, in particular at the Gare de Lyon. 20 minutes take advantage of this and prepare an article on the most unusual everyday experiences that have occurred on board the TGV.
On the rails or on the platform, dramatic events can of course occur. But fortunately there are some more joyful or unusual. Did you know, for example, that in January 2019, a mother gave birth in her TGV which linked Paris and Strasbourg? Or that in August 2020, a TGV driver had missed the stop he was to mark in Nîmes and had to reverse?
And you, what are your craziest stories in a TGV? Did you attend a happy event? A marriage proposal ? Have you met your soul mate or your best friend? Has your trip been disrupted for some crazy reason? Were you seated next to a celebrity, did a paquito in the hallway with some rugby players or met your future employer? Tell us !
