Making train connections in Rennes-need insight

I am looking at booking a train from St Malo to Paris next Spring. Does anyone know if a 15 minute connection in Rennes from the Regional SNCF train to the TGV is sufficient time with minimal luggage? It would be a Sat afternoon connection around 2 pm.

It should be OK. The station is small. Have you & your bags ready at the door when the St Malo train stops & doors open.

In any provincial station, 5 minutes is plenty to make a connection -- and that is often how the connections are planned. 15 minutes is royal.

I agree. That's a luxurious amount of time.
