Alstom will renovate the 1970s TGV 001 power car at its site in Belfort to be displayed by the A36 motorway at the entrance to the city of Belfort, France. The power car, which is an iconic symbol in both the rail world and for the city, will begin its journey today (25 April) to be transported by special convoy to Alstom’s Belfort site to begin the restoration.

Iconic Alstom TGV 001

The move comes following a campaign by Damien Meslot, Deputy-Mayor of Belfort, to restore the train to its former glory for the city and its visitors. The work  will be undertaken with paint specialists MÄDER to renovate the power car, resorting its original orange livery.

The restoration will take until June 2016, when it will be moved to be exhibited again at the entrance to the city.
