Train of the day

The boyf and I spent a few days in Nice. The south of France is always very agreeable.

We went on a TGV Duplex (above) from Paris to Nice in 5 and a half hours, which is amazing when you look at the distance on the map (about 600 miles).

It was our first time on a double-deck TGV. We were on the upper deck. Surprisingly it did not seem cramped at all - you hardly notice that you are in only the upper half of the train.

Why can't we have such wonderful railway services in the UK?
