So the MS 61 was recently renovated, at least many of them have.

When I have seen the various photos of the stock in the current livery I had always thought that they had been recently renovated.

Obviously the whole network was affected.

Wow? Where's the wow factor anywhere in that crush? Montreal closes the affected station(s) by booting its passengers outdoors when the load scale becomes critical ... more like "Woah", what with that having been overly dangerous (nowhere to go), lucky there hadn't been any other simultaneous emergency.

The departure of the RER E at Haussmann Saint Lazare station are now indicated on the hall of Saint Lazare railway terminal.


No need to rush anymore.
Rectification: more than 3 minutes are required to do the transfer between Saint Lazare and Haussmann Saint Lazare platforms, so you need to rush.

During this video (taken from a Transillien train), you'll see quite a bit of construction going on with the planned Tangentielle Nord



(This is the nearest thread linking Regional trains, with Paris' suburban network)

Maybe we could add the non-RER suburban lines in this thread.
About the Tangentielle Nord, I don't know where to put it.
In suburban trains or in tram as it will use Tram-Train rolling stock ?
No T number are planned for this line.

Although subway, London's station-closure policy's probably more solid than Montreal's:

Aulnay-sous-Bois
They increased the height of the platforms to ease the flow of passengers and to be step free.
This is part of the major renovation of the northern RER B, called RER B+ Nord.
The northern section of the RER B was known for its low platform heights.







This is how was the station in September 2010.

I can definitely see the differences. Great improvement!

Eastbound platform screen. High frequency ?

Train à quai = train at the platform
Train à l'approche = train approaching

Changed the name of the thread for you.

Perhaps we can merge the trams with the metro thread as the trams are for shorter distances like the metro, right?

No, keep the trams with bus as it is now.
RATP sees the tram like heavy bus line, it is possible to do a transfer between bus and tram with a same ticket but it is not possible to do a transfer between bus or tram with metro.

Okay, will do. As for the tram-train, you can classify it as you see fit. I'd probably put it in here as a "suburban railway" from the sound of it though.

Great work with all these Parisian threads though, Minato!
