Nothing wrong with the TGV trains - fast and reasonably comfortable - being on the top deck is great for the views but ......... steep spiral staircase and luggage coupled with a three minute stop with 30+ to get on or off a train means a frightening nightmare!! Lyon and Avignon stations on the Brussles/Marseilles route.
Luggage space restricted and jump seats in doorways (often occupied).
The train guards are insistent that the train will not wait so those boarding are trying to push on whilst you are trying to get off. We ended up running the length of a carriage (at the insistance of the station guard) for another door and then carrying all our luggage through the carriage to get to our place. It may be fine in ones and twos but I will never use this method again as I'd spend all my time worrying.
