TGVweb has been around since December 1994. When I started the site, I had no idea it would come this far. Of course, it would never have been possible without the help of numerous sources.

A Big Thanks To:

Some Sources Used:

La Vie du Rail

French weekly rail magazine. Great for keeping up with the latest developments. Good historical and international coverage. Good special editions on topics such as the world speed record. Their photography is solid and the writing good, despite the occasional over-patriotic bias. No wonder, since this is a publication widely read by the employees of SNCF. Subscriptions: call (+33) 1 49 70 12 63.

Chemins de Fer

The magazine of the Association des Amis des Chemins de Fer (AFAC), with some well-researched articles on various TGV topics. This publication is of far higher quality than LVDR, but it is only bimonthly and very expensive. See their web page for more info.

Various Magazines...

Railway Gazette International, Railway Age, Trains, Loco Revue, Rail Passion, etc.

Various Libraries...

Of help to me was the Stanford University Engineering library, which should have an equivalent at any large university with an engineering school. Research papers and conference proceedings abound. A treasure trove of old primary source documents can be found in Paris at the Bibliothèque Publique d'Informations at Beaubourg.
