WOW! So fast....great job mister Jean

If you hear what sounds like a jet, it appears that there is one following the train. Look in the upper left portion of the screen as the train is headed away from you.

Fantastic! Nice video!

Nice catch on the train (and the jet). I had to watch a couple times to see it. I will say that I wish I was there due to the fact the train had to scream!

Pacing this in a helicopter would be impossible, too fast!

Awesome video Jean-Francois. It's the fastest train I ever saw. Thanks for sharing.

Brings new meaning to taking the green light segment, but I would really like to see that jets video of the TGV!

Posted by Nikko P on November 27, 2007

Mike -- the video is a little bit fuzzy so its difficult to tell. It looks like either a large bird or a small plane. But it looks too small to be a jet. And the sound definitely reached its climax when the train passed by. I think the jet-like sound we here from planes and the sound we heard here are caused by objects moving at shear speed, not necessarily a jet engine.

Trainmaster611- Yes of course, no jet had filmed the train during the TV show report during this record, Superman was here and had recorded the Train !

Actually, there is a jet following the train (in objection to the above post). View this video and you will see footage from it.

Check out the sparks flying off the pantograph.

Shear speed... Yes indeed, this train is absolutely 'cutting edge'.

Having taken the TGV in the summer of 1999 from Holland to Paris and back I remember feeling that I was on a jet plane flying high in the sky, as opposed to being on a train. Amazing ride.

Wish we had these in the States ! would be quite an attraction !

Posted by second-b on December 6, 2008

Is there a recorded speed for this train I just viewed moving at an amazing speed?

Posted by second-b on December 6, 2008

Wow! 348mph! That's what we need in the states.

Posted by J611Lover on December 11, 2008

That's sick!

In addition to the train sound, you can also hear the stuned comment of the film maker: "putain". For non french speakers it's a sort of "f..k".
