Trains: delays, cancellations… the worst main lines in France

Progress is moving forward, but travel times are getting longer. As the TGVs travel through France at 200mph, the Intercités, the bad relations of high speed, slow inexorably. In twenty years, the time to connect Paris with Clermont-Ferrand or Limoges, or even Bordeaux with Nantes or Marseille, has become significantly longer. To reach Limoges from the capital it took 195 minutes in 2019, compared to 166 in 2003, according to data on “the evolution of travel times” shared by the SNCF. Twenty-nine minutes left to cover 340 km!
