Reviews & ratings St Pierre des corps - Tours
We went to Marseille from Paris by TGV train. We enjoyed the experience on the train.
St Pierre de cors is a small station but difficult when carrying luggage. It was not clear at which pier I should stand.
The convenience of the train was the clear and made the journey easier. It is now a far better journey than 15 years ago. Some stations can do with some to point out where to stand before the trains arrive and easier access to get bags up and down from platforms, but these are usually relatively minor matters.
They announced just before the departure that the train would be delayed by up to 45 minutes due to an accident/ person on the track outside of Lille. I would have prefered that they announced a new departure time so that people could get back off the train and then get back on when they thought it might depart. Apart from the delay everything else was fine.
SCNF trains had comfortable seats and were reasonably priced. Interestingly many coaches had seats facing opposite directions some forward some backward. We travelled light and found plenty of room for baggage. The train staff were helpful. We learnt from experience to get advice prior to leaving Tours because the SCNF train booking from Bordeaux to Tours had a change at St Pierre. The Tours and St Pierre Gare are only one stop and a few minutes apart. By the time you have sat down you are there. For us it was an unnecessary change because the train we were already on from Bordeaux went directly to Tours anyway. There was no need for us to change trains. When we left Tours for Paris the Accueil office advised us to get on the later Tours to Paris train and ignore the earlier booking for a change at St Pierre. This change for us would have been unnecessary as the Tours to Paris train stopped at St Pierre anyway. Taking the earlier train booking to St Pierre would have had us waiting at the platform for the later train that went directly from Tours to Paris.
