Le Train a Grande Vitesse – high-speed train – was developed during the 1970s. Originally designed to be powered by gas turbines, the prototypes evolved into electric trains with the petrol crisis of 1973. Following the inaugural TGV service between Paris and Lyon in 1981, the TGV network, centred on Paris, has expanded to connect many cities across France and in adjacent countries on combinations of high-speed and conventional lines. In 2007, SNCF generated profits of €1.1 billion (approximately £875 million) driven largely by higher margins on the TGV network. A TGV test train set the record for the fastest wheeled train, reaching 574.8 km/h (357.2 mph) on 3 April 2007.   In mid-2011, scheduled TGV trains operated at the highest speeds in conventional train service in the world, regularly reaching 320 km/h (200 mph). A TGV service held the record for the fastest scheduled rail journey with a start-to-stop average speed of 279.4 km/h (173.6 mph), until surpassed by the Chinese on the Wuhan–Guangzhou High-Speed Railway some time between December 2009 and July 2011.
