Travel is an important part in each of our lives . We have a very fast lifestyle, so we are always almost short on time. Our first mode of travel was a wheel and it still is but the way and usage has changed. For fast travel we hop onto an airplane and there we are at our destination. Air Travel is not always viable and an option, so in these case we move to ground based travel.

There are fast ground based travel modes available and one such is the high speed TGV trains in France. These trains reach the maximum speed of upto 320 Km/h. There is Shinkansen in Japan, ICE in Germany , so yes there are modes of high speed ground travel and here we will follow TGV, TGV is French acronym for “Train à Grande Vitesse”. and  in english this means a high speed train.
