TGVweb Bibliography and Credits
TGVweb has been around since December 1994. When I started
the site, I had no idea it would come this far. Of course, it would never
have been possible without the help of numerous sources.

Some Sources Used:
La Vie du Rail
French weekly rail magazine. Great for keeping up with the latest
developments. Good historical and international coverage. Good special
editions on topics such as the world speed record. Their photography
is solid and the writing good, despite the occasional over-patriotic bias.
No wonder, since this is a publication widely read by the employees of
SNCF. Subscriptions: call (+33) 1 49 70 12 63.
Chemins de Fer
The magazine of the Association des Amis des Chemins de Fer (AFAC), with some
well-researched articles on various TGV topics. This publication
is of far higher quality than LVDR, but it is only bimonthly and
very expensive. See their web page for more info.
Railway Gazette International, Railway Age, Trains, Loco Revue, Rail Passion, etc.
Of help to me was the Stanford University Engineering library, which
should have an equivalent at any large university with an engineering
school. Research papers and conference proceedings abound. A treasure
trove of old primary source documents can be found in Paris at the
Bibliothèque Publique d'Informations at Beaubourg.
