TGV Misses Station

In the US we recently had an airliner that overflew its airport while its two pilots claim to have been preoccupied with their personal computers in the cockpit. Now, in France, a TGV has missed its station. The Paris-Rennes was supposed to stop in Le Mans but didn't. The SNCF calls the incident "extremely rare." The inconvenienced passengers were returned to Le Mans by another TGV headed in the opposite direction. The engineer responsible for the "faute grave" will presumably be hung from a butcher's hook.

I'd be surprized if any sort of sanction befell the train conducteur.
