Lorraine TGV is a new railway station on the LGV Est, a TGV high-speed rail line from Paris to Strasbourg. It is located in Louvigny, between the towns of Metz and Nancy.

When built, it was criticized for being too far from any of the towns to be useful. There are many political disputes to decide if it should be rebuilt at Vandières, Meurthe-et-Moselle, connected with the Metz-Nancy railway line (TER Lorraine).
