Security for luggage on SNCF train Paris to Avignon

Am I being overly cautious in having a concern about suitcases being stowed on the SNCF TGV train from Paris to Avignon? Apparently there are no porters so we load the cases ourselves. Should we attach bicycle locks? I would be so appreciative of any feedback. Thanks!

Even when there is an SNCF person checking your tickets at each carriage door, I have never seen any of them help a passenger with a suitcase. OH&S issues.

I can't see where anybody in this thread has suggested that train crew touch or move passengers bags around.It's passengers themselves that often have to move another passengers bag to make room on the rack for more luggage.

If you can find them, the Big Yellow Tags work very well for identification purposes.

Actually Gare de Lyon has porters and the service is free. https:/…luggage
