The inside of Saint Lazare terminal station
By 2011, the interior will be rebuilt, including better connections with the métro and RER, a shopping mall...

I recently read in the parisien that the p'tits gris would be replaced by Avanto S70 trains on the Esbly-Crecy line. How is that going? I've got a few questions:

1. Is it true (i can't imagine that because no one uses the line)
2. Are the trains new?
3. Are they already there?
4. Will there be any construction works to increase capacity on the line?

Thanks already!!

Honestly I don't have more info than le Parisien newspaper or Wikipedia.
The ligne Esbly - Crécy-la-Chapelle is not a very important line, it is used by only 850 passengers per day.

1. Is it true ? I think that it is.
2. Are the trains new? No they come from the T4 tram train line where there are too many.
3. Are they already there? Not on the Esbly - Crécy-la-Chapelle line but I think they are in Noisy le Sec atelier where are parked the Avanto S70 of the T4.
4. Will there be any construction works to increase capacity on the line ? I don't know.

With a basic "Paris Visite" card (zone 1 - 3), you can use this train between Gare du Nord and Gare d'Épinay - Villetaneuse.
Anyway this line don't serve CDG airport.

A good but little trip use if you want to use this train, take this line to go in Saint Denis , unfortunately it is only one station but the distance between gare du nord and Saint Denis is quite long: 6 km.
In Saint Denis you can visit the Basilica (where are burried French kings), the busy center and you could go back to inner with the metro line 13.

The non RER suburban train are on the overground platform of the Gare du Nord, follow the sign (Train de Banlieue).
The is a whole network, not a basic single line.
Only the services bound to Luzarches have Z50000 train.
All services stop at Saint Denis station.

Does someone you know the logic of the Transilien numbering scheme ?
For example why isn't there a line I between line H and line K ?

Q, because in french, Q is said as "cul", which means "arse" !
O, too similar with 0 (zero).
S, well... I don't see.

Hello, I'm interrested in consulting with someone from France on a topic =)

Previously I imagined that investing at a large, medium speed train network would be more effective then focusing in high-speed lines, because the medium speed trains would be cheaper to ride, and allow people to go to more places, allowing them to live without a car, therefore bringing more ridership. But when comparing the ridership figures from Germany and France, I see that France has had a huge growth in ridership in the last 10 years thanks to a huge growth in ridership in the high-speed lines, although in Germany you can travel cheaper (with a Bahn card for example), in a network which reaches more places, but it is slower then in france.

How do people in France see this? Is the huge surge in HSR ridership essentially filled with business people who don't care about the high ticket prices? Or do people travelling for leisure also enjoy the fast ride despite high costs? Or am I wrong and you can also get cheap tickets somehow?
