Two TGV trains are normally joined together for the high speed part of the journey between Paris and Rennes.
At Rennes the trains are then separated- one train (usually the front train) continues on to Saint-Malo, the second part of the train usually heads off to Brest.
So arrive at Paris Montparnasse at least 10 mins before the train departs and check the coach number on your ticket.
Your seat will be in this coach and you can check the coach number on the outside of the trains.
When two TGV trains are joined together, these can be exceptionally long trains, so you may have to walk some distance along the voie/platform - hence the advice to be at Paris Montparnasse at least 10 mins before the train departs!
When looking at the departure board you may see another train departing at the same time AND from the same voie (platform/track) as the train heading to Saint-Malo.
This info is for the other train that will be attached to the Saint-Malo train between Paris and Rennes.
Between Paris and Rennes the train will travel at more than 280 km/h on the high speed line
