Hi all,

I have a flight arriving at Paris Orly airport next week, and looking at a TGV to Lyon.

The first is TGV 5316, departing from Massy Palaiseau Grande Ceinture, and the second is TGV 5320, departing Massy TGV.

As far as I can tell, these are part of the same station complex, and I can get the Orlyval to Antony then RER to reach them. (Or a cab!) Is that right? The French do love their long, complicated station names.

Turns out it is actually the RER C platforms, and they get called Massy Palaiseau TGV just for two trains a day. Very weird.

Yeah, it’s just next to the RER station building in Massy-Palaiseau, the side of RER B.
