French railways took on low-cost, no-frills airlines yesterday with a high-speed train to shuttle internet-savvy urbanites between Paris and the Mediterranean for as little as £13 each way — plus extra for a massage.
In Gallic style, the SNCF chose a mouthful of initials for its “new concept” in train service. It is to be called the iDTGV — for interactif-Détente Train à Grande Vitesse, or “interactive relaxed high-speed train”. The double-decker, six-carriage train will run once a day from Paris to Avignon, Marseilles and Toulon and back, offering two classes and two “spaces”.
