    Beautiful Addition to My Collection

    Posted by Glenn on May 21st 2018

    I have and run the orange Sud-Est (Southeast) TGV from Kato occasionally. For my wife and I it has sentimental value since we road the Sud-Est in the early '90's from Paris to Geneva. Had always wanted to get another one but stuck to focusing on my US passenger and freight collection over the years.

    Other TGV/SNCF trains have been rather plain looking over the years. But when I saw this set here at ModelTrainStuff I was struck by it's beauty. And I do not regret the purchase one bit. Runs very well and looks stunning next to the Sud-Est. Now to order light kits to illuminate the cars.

    And I have broken down and ordered the Eurostar to complete my set. This too is a favorite and one we rode in the late '90's from Paris to London. Thanks MTS for renewing my interest in these trains!
