For your second request, no RER line is being constructed at the moment.
Sorry, I didn't phrase that question correctly. What I meant was, are there any old historical pictures of the original RER stations or lines being built (like La Defense, Auber, Nation, etc.)?

Two 1970 pictures taken from www.amtuir.org
Amtuir is an association that supports the opening of a Paris Transport museum.

The LGV Est goes from Paris to Strasbourg - any future line or upgrades from Strasbourg to Munich will have a different project name (presumably a German one!)...

In terms of what ? Area ? Number of tracks ? Number of national/suburban passengers ?

The Gare du Nord with 31 tracks and around 180 million travellers per year (the busiest station in Europe and the third-busiest in the world in terms of passengers) is a good candidate...

Overground station:


International part:


Suburban hall:


Underground station (RER):

The intercity (TGV, Corail) and regional train (TER) have 1st and 2nd class.
The Parisian suburban trains have only the 2nd class.
