This was the TGV (French: Train à Grande Vitesse, “high-speed train”) that brought us to Zürich from Basel.  These models have a top speed of 200 MPH. Production of the Duplex totals 160 units, making it the backbone of the SNCF TGV-fleet.  A SLM (Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works) electric locomotive is on the neighboring rail line.
