At mid-day today, I'll be looking out the window of a train. Here are some things you see as you ride the train from Blois to Paris and back.
Many little train stations like this one at Villeneuve-le-Roi in the far Paris suburbs
Grain elevators/silos as you ride along the edge of the wheat-growing Beauce region
Gigantic wind turbines towering over villages and hamlets
Farmers' cooperatives all along the line
Big early-morning crowds at the Gare d'Austerlitz in Paris...
...but not very many people on the train
This is the train line on which there was a derailment about 10 days ago. I believe the SNCF (the French national railways) has carefully inspected all the track between Paris and Blois by now. I sure hope so.
