Note that these trains to Limoges depart from Austerlitz station in Paris.
Final Destination: Toulouse or Brive or Cahors or Limoges
Limoges isn't connected to the network of high speed lines in France, so there are no TGV trains between Paris and Limoges.
Instead the trains on this route are the top tier Intercités trains; the refurbished and updated Intercités trains are undoubtedly more comfortable than travelling by TGV.

Rail Pass users:
If you will be travelling with an InterRail or Eurail pass, you will have to pay a reservation fee prior to boarding boarding on the Intercités trains on this particular route; more info is available on our guide to using rail passes in France.
Those rail pass reservations fee are the same as for TGV trains, so they can seem expensive when they are also applied to these Intercités trains, but there are no viable alternatives for avoiding these trains on this route.
