TGV DUPLEX – A TRAIN OF THE THIRD GENERATION
The high-speed line linking Paris and Lyon was opened for traffic in 1981. It was to
solve the problems of the ever-increasing flow of passengers between France’s two largest
cities. A high-speed train of the second generation (TGV) was specially developed for this line.
Twenty years passed and the new line itself is overcrowded with 150 trains a day and 17
million passengers a year. Traffic frequency during peak hours is 1 train per 5 minutes. To
increase the carrying capacity of the line, French National Railways has ordered from the
company Alsthom 30 trains of the third generation. TGV Duplex is a high-speed double-deck
train. It has 40% more seats than a conventional TGV. It consists of 8 trailers and 2 power cars.
The speed of TGV Duplex reaches 300 km per hour. This third-generation train is made of
lightweight materials. Extra capacity has been achieved by lowering the floor of the lower deck
by 40 cm. Besides, the overall height of the vehicle was increased by 20 cm. The passage along
the trains is only possible at the upper level.
Despite the 40% increase in the number of seats, the comfort level for passengers in
second class has been enhanced by providing reclining seats and 7 cm more legroom*.
Improvements compared with previous TGV generations include a modern aerodynamic
profile and a new braking system, which significantly reduce noise level. All areas are air-
conditioned and pressurized to prevent discomfort when running through tunnels at a high
speed. Lower-deck accommodation is quieter than the upper deck as there is no through
passage between cars. However, the view from the upper deck is far superior. Passengers with
heavy luggage prefer the lower deck to save the effort of carrying their cases upstairs.
Technically, the train is a triumph. It was built on previous TGV experience but a number
of new technologies, techniques and materials were introduced to solve the very difficult
problems connected with a double-deck car configuration.
Notes: *legroom – место для ног.
