Other TGV Photo Links
The web's largest collection of TGV pictures is available in the European Railway Server's Picture Gallery. These photos are well worth a visit. SNCF (the French national railways) also have TGV photos here and here. TGV photos occasionally show up in the binary newsgroup alt.binaries.pictures.rail, the last few days of which are archived here. At the end of every month, all photos from a.b.p.r. for that month are archived here.
In general the copyright for the photo belongs to the photographer whose e-mail address is listed next to the photo. If you would like to use one of these photos, please contact the owner directly. For commercial uses a fee may be charged by the author of the photo. Any use of a photo without consent of the author is strictly forbidden. Other web sites may link to this photo gallery index page, but may not link directly to the photos within it.
If you have TGV pictures which you would like to see displayed here, I would be pleased to display them; just email me. I have a strong preference for something else than the usual "nose shots".
