The TVG service first started between Paris and Lyon in 1981. Later, the network connected other cities in France with Paris. A TVG test train set a world record for the fastest conventional wheeled train on 3 April 2007. It reached the speed of 574.8 km/h (357.2m/h). It is the present world record of the speed of a conventional commercial train.
