    || SNCF unveils Ouigo low-cost TGV service ||

    Welcome to the " Ryanair " style TGV offering. More affordable yes, but to what price?

    Honestly it doesnt look that bad apart from the fact that the trains leave from Marne-la-Vallée Chessy

    Which, however is fairly easily connected by using the RER A?? :)

    That said personally I can understand the attraction of the new service since of the number of times I have taken the TGV I have never once used the dining or bar facilities.
    I wonder if this is a through service? Since the times I have used the service from the south I have
    had to change trains in Lyon.
