The French high-speed train network (TGV) celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. That railway milestone was commemorated in style with a special unveiling of a new TGV train at an event attended by France’s President, M. Emmanuel Macron. The drop was rigged by our good friends at Blackout France using Electro Kabuki to ensure a faultless reveal.
As you can see from a post on President Macron’s own Instagram account, the result was ‘parfait’.
The train unveiled is the TGV-M, a new class of high-speed train due to enter service across France in 2023. President Macron’s Instagram post calls it “The TGV of the future” that will be “more accessible, more connected and more ecological.”
