I’ve always been impressed by the speed, comfort and relative dependability of France’s national railway system, but it appears that SNCF has made an incredible blunder. After ordering 341 new TER regional trains, a simple measurement error is going to cost SCNF more than € 50 million to enlarge at least 1300 stations to accommodate the new cars. Engineers failed to check stations built more than 30 years ago for accurate spacing between platforms and the tracks.
