Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Or 90-580, if calculating with a more conservative top speed.

Note BTW: the acceleration rule-of-thumb numbers I gave are assuming distributed traction. TGV-style trains with tractor heads should be slower, see the current top speed example. (That train is allowed a top speed of 320 km/h = 200 mph on 40 km, 300 km/h = 183 mph on the rest of the 289.6 km relation, except for the Avignon bifurcation.)
