The LGV Sud-Est line from Paris to Lyon is the most heavily loaded high-speed line in France and has almost reached its capacity limit since its opening in 1981. That was the idea for the TGV Duplex, where passengers should sit on two levels. This increased passenger capacity by 45% compared to a one-story TGV of the same length. As with all other TGV train types, two TGV duplex train units can be paired. With the duplex began the third generation of French high-speed trains. With two seating levels and a capacity of 545 seats per train, the Duplex offers the highest seating capacity of all TGV trainsets.
