Why use "c'était" when referring to the TGV?

It seems it should be "il était" because you are referring specifically to the TGV, and not trains generally.

This question relates to:

Hi Ken,

In, ‘ C’était très rapide’ what is meant is the whole journey rather than the train itself which of course is very fast....

Hope this helps!
