Long weekend ahead

Thursday 25th May is Ascension Day, and a national holiday here. Many people will use the Friday to faire le pont - literally to bridge to the weekend - meaning that the four days will be used for a long weekend break.
If you are planning to go by train it will be important to check the rail timetables because SNCF are planning major maintenance work from 16h on Thursday until 16h on Sunday. There will be no Intercity trains on the Toulouse - Limoges-Paris line, with some knock-on cancellations to the TER services using those lines. Toulouse - Bordeaux - Paris routes are unaffected. Some local services will have buses to replace trains, but they may well be fully booked.
