This is a normal post his comment about the number of axles per carriage is noted,
but I would suggest he check the axle arrangement on the TGV

This is a normal post I don't know owt about trains (honest)
but does that train not have two bogeys, each with two axles, per carriage - for a total of four?

This is a normal post it has on the engines,
but on the coaches it has twin-axle bogeys shared between one coach and the next. Which is quite odd. I believe the Eurostar is based on it as well, but I can't find a picture.

This is a normal post well there you go.
goodness knows what they do if they have to take a train apart for any reason, it would be impossible to shunt the coaches round individually.

This is a normal post Lowest rolling resistance and axle friction
fnarr fnarr.

I think the rakes of 4 or 3 conjoined units are small enough to be shunted as units, and when they need to fix them the use the magic of cranes. [EDIT oh, they are groups of 10......as you were]
