I don't know, I can just say that MS 61 has been spotted every day since March 31.

While they are rehabbing Versailles, are they going to restore the old station as well?

Paris RER Line E La Défense station contract awarded
Thursday, April 07, 2016



FRENCH infrastructure manager SNCF Network has awarded a consortium of Vinci Construction and Spie a €496m contract to construct a new underground station in the business district of La Défense as part of the €3.7bn western extension of Paris RER Line E

The extension involves constructing an 8km tunnel from Hausmann St Lazare to La Défense and Nanterre-la-Folie and upgrading the existing 47km line to Poissy and Mantes-la-Jolie. The extension will cut journey times between western suburbs and La Défense by up to 17 minutes

The MS61 still doesn't give up! At the moment it has just left Boissy on a ZEMA 05 service to St Germain. (Source: Facebook group "Derniers MS61 sur le RER A")

The end of an era on the RER is nearing, so here is my attempt at a watercolour of the train:

BTW Antje, you're in good company with your artistic tribute to this public transport event. Here's a predecessor, Gino Severini (the famous futurist painter) painting an ancestor of the Transilien in 1915:

The painting can be seen at Tate Modern: http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/...n-paris-t01070

MS 61, last day.
It did at least three services
La Defense - Boissy-Saint-Léger
Boissy-Saint-Léger - Saint-Germain-en-Laye,
Saint-Germain-en-Laye - Boissy-Saint-Léger.

It was an incredibly day.

Empty MS 61 at La Défense

Several fans and I didn't take the MS 61 but a train that left before for Boissy to take pictures of the MS 61 arriving at Sucy - Bonneuil

Here I have seen the most incredible thing, at Sucy - Bonneuil the RER A tracks run parallel to SNCF Grande Ceinture tracks (outer belt, mainly used for freight).
A SNCF driver decided to race with the MS 61. According what I heard, he did that without any autorisation.





We didn't take the MS 61, we headed to Champigny to get other pictures.

We finally took the MS 61 at Champigny
Cab view on the rear car with a cool RATP officer.



Saint-Germain-en-Laye, a lot of train fan.

MS 61 and MI 09



We headed to Le Vésinet - Le Pecq with the MI 09 to take pictures of the MS 61 arriving.



Rear car with a train fans

Front car was crowded with fans (even the people seated)

Châtelet-les-Halles

Goodbye MS 61.

I was aware of trainspotters in Britain, but I did not think France had a sizable community.

I think most Western countries have a sizable community and a few developing nations like Brazil , Mexico , India , Pakistan , Thailand , Indonesia and Egypt have sizable communities..
