TGV Sud-Est

Everybody in France knows about the TGV. The French love their railways and the TGV is the pride of SNCF.

The train à grande vitesse (TGV) which was designed by Alstom and SNCF and entered service in 1981 on the Paris-Lyon route.
The TGV is one of the great trains of all time, a machine that changed the perception of travel and its possibilities.

The TGVs distinctive razor-edged nose looks both technical and elegantly feral. It was designed by an Englishman, Jack Cooper, who trained in the studio of Raymond Loewy in New York.

TGV 01 nicknamed "Patrick" was the very first production TGV built.
In late 2019 the first fleet was phased out of service, to commemorate the amazing service these first TGVs provided, Patrick was repainted into the three liveries worn by these trains.

First is the iconic orange and grey livery.
Second the stylish silver and blue livery.
Third the new white, red and black livery.


Tout le monde en France connaît le TGV. Les Français aiment leurs chemins de fer et le TGV est la fierté de la SNCF.
Le train à grande vitesse (TGV) conçu par Alstom et la SNCF et mis en service en 1981 sur la ligne Paris-Lyon.
Le TGV est l'un des plus grands trains de tous les temps, une machine qui a changé la perception du voyage et ses possibilités.
Le nez distinctif aux bords rasoirs du TGV semble à la fois technique et élégamment sauvage. Il a été conçu par l'Anglais Jack Cooper, qui s'est entraîné dans le studio de Raymond Loewy à New York.
Le TGV 01 surnommé «Patrick» fut le tout premier TGV de production construit. Fin 2019, le premier de la flotte a été mis hors service, pour commémorer le service incroyable fourni par ces premiers TGV, Patrick a été repeint dans les trois livrées portées par ces trains.
La première est la livrée emblématique orange et grise.
Deuxièmement l'élégante livrée argentée et bleue.
Troisièmement, la nouvelle livrée blanche, rouge et noire.

European orders

My dear customers in the European Union are greatly valued and I appreciate all your past and future business.

Sadly, the UK is no longer a member of the EU and doing business is not so easy, proving particularly difficult for small business.

I am, of course still happy to send orders to the EU. Royal Mail prices have increased, but since most orders are relatively low value, it seems easy enough to post items.

However, if your delivery address is in an EU country please be aware that you may be asked to pay additional duty or fees before you can receive your goods. Most seem to be in region of €13 to €20 in custom charges.

It is very difficult to find information about what will happen when small parcels are sent from the UK to the EU, this page will be updated as the situation becomes clearer.
