Taking the train is rarely a pleasure. But on Sunday 24 January, a controller was able to give a smile to the passenger of the TGV which linked Guingamp to Paris. Thanks to its original ad to say the least, it made the buzz on the web.

If you use the toilet, you will find that the paper that is there also dates from this glorious time, ”begins the controller. “You have to know that this train has a story… but I don’t know it”.

If you hold on to the end, you will be able to register for the Koh-Lanta show ”, continues the controller. “In a few minutes, we will pass among you, do not hesitate to ask us when we pass in your car. Tell us what you need, we will explain how to do without it. You should also know that you have the privilege of traveling on the SNCF line which employs the most beautiful and sympathetic controllers of the entire French rail network. Unfortunately none of them work on Sundays, so you won’t see any today. SNCF and its crew, less beautiful than usual, but fortunately masked, wish you an excellent trip ”. A message that has something to cheer up in these complicated times …
