SNCF is the state-managed railway network in France. Founded in 1938, when France's major private railways were merged, the firm is now based in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Denis and is active across the world. SNCF's iconic TGV high-speed service carries over 100 million people per year and is the providers' most famous symbol. Every day, SNCF runs 7,500 trains to 5,000 stations, using 2,000 coaches.
SNCF offers a full range of transport services. There is a variety of cheap ticket options for standard travel and concessions for the over 60's and under 12's. Connections are easy to meet due to the firm timing them efficiently. SNCF trains are all comfortable and well stocked with food and drink options, while some major stations will even have accommodation facilities.
The major stations operated by SNCF are all in France. Along with Paris Gare du Nord, the company runs services to Lyon, Marseille, Bordeaux and Lille but also runs high-speed trains to international destinations such as Geneva or Milan.
