Breakdown in Montparnasse: traffic back to normal this Friday morning

Thursday afternoon, the SNCF had asked travelers to postpone their TGV journeys on the Atlantic Arc to the next day, due to a power failure.

The situation has almost returned to normal this Friday morning at Montparnasse station, where TGV traffic was severely disrupted all day Thursday after a power failure. This morning, all main line trains are announced on time, but some disruptions remain on line N of the Transilien. Yesterday evening, the SNCF had warned that the TGV traffic plan would still know “some small adjustments at the very beginning of the morning” before a full recovery, and added that “all the travelers concerned” had been warned.

All day Thursday, the SNCF faced a power failure at the entrance to the station, severely disrupting traffic on the TER, TGV, Transilien and Intercités lines. “A power failure required the intervention of a technical team near the Paris Montparnasse station. During this intervention, traffic had to be temporarily interrupted, ”the company announced on Twitter.

The SNCF then asked travelers who planned to travel this Thursday by TGV between Paris and the Atlantic Arc to postpone their trip until the next day. This request concerned travelers who planned to take the train this Thursday between Paris and the regions of Brittany, Pays-de-la-Loire and the South-West of France.

A transilien broken down just before arriving at the station

Thursday morning, at the same time as the first incident, broke down just before arriving at the station. When the traffic was already disorganized, the passengers got off the stationary train, resulting in the immobilization of all traffic nearby, for safety reasons. It was then necessary to “make sure that the people were gone”, explained a spokesperson for the SNCF.

At 10:50 am, the SNCF announced on its Twitter account a gradual resumption of TGV traffic. But several trains to and from Paris were still waiting. Around 1:30 p.m., things returned to normal for the TER, Intercités and Transilien, but several TGVs were still affected by very significant delays, exceeding two hours, or even two and a half hours, in some cases. “We’re starting to get cold and our train has been stuck for 1 hour, a stone’s throw from Paris!” a traveler exclaimed on Twitter.
