Introducing LGV Méditerranée[edit | edit source]

Experience the excitement of high-speed rail, aboard the iconic TGV Duplex, through sun-soaked Southern France with Train Sim World 2: LGV Méditerranée. This cutting edge route forces its way across sprawling fields and wide valleys, featuring mindblowing tunnels, viaducts and gradients.

History meets state-of-the-art infrastructure on LGV Méditerranée, the classic Marseille-Saint-Charles station and main line contrasts greatly to the modern masterpieces that are Aix-en-Provence and Avignon TGV stations, which are linked by purpose-built high-speed rail capable of supporting 320 km/h operation.

Take on the challenge of operating the TGV Duplex, this state-of the-art unit boasts a capacity exceeding 500 passengers, thanks to its twin deck configuration, and to ensure safety at the highest speeds is fitted with no less than 4 safety-critical systems; KVB, VACMA, Crocodile and TVM-430.

The route covers the 93 kilometres high speed LGV Méditerranée from Marseille to Avignon via Aix-en-Provence. The LGV Méditerranée is a dedicated high speed railway opened in 2001 with speeds of up to 320 km/h.
