World Speed Record 1981

One of the images in the post 2 weeks ago revealed another, earlier, record run of the TGV in 1981. That's what the video I'm posting will show this week. On 26 February 1981, the TGV Sud-Est no 100 set a world speed record for trains of 380 km/h, or in Her Majesty's units of measurement, 236 miles per hour.
