Railroad workers are apparently now a prestige job in Israel. And I've seen people on this site gushing over works in Saudi Arabia and Kenya.

I believe that Graham Claytor said it best: "from Kings down to the common man".

Today (from Italy) I Read the horrible New.
I'm a Fan about MS 61 Stock , especially the first Years with With and Blue Livery . I Was suggested by this Kind of Metro System called RER and this Train so Speed and Multi-funtionally , From the deepest tube Station under 3 Metro Traditional Lines (see Auber Opera) To Open Countries. A Wonderful Metro Car For Everybody, Everywhere.

Will Miss You To Me so much , MS 61 .

I Travelled many Days confortable during my Paris Vacation .
I Hope The RATP Will Preserve some Car , maybe with the Historical White/blue Livery , MS 61 has contributed much to the success of the RER .

La Défense
They changed the lighting.
The station hall is now much brighter.

^ Looks better. Will probably have to visit tomorrow...

The company that has been changing stations to LED lights for RATP throughout the network is Romanian

Melun
The end stop for the RER D and the first station of the Transilien R after Gare de Lyon




Old Z 5300 and two level Z2N
Z 5300 run on Melun - Montereau service of the R and Juvisy - Melun service of the RER D. Both are services that don't go to Central Paris.
Z 5300 is the oldest suburban stock in service. The oldest was built in 1965 and the most recent in 1974. Those still in service are mostly from the end of the 1960s. They are being withdrawn and remplaced by Z2N.







Transilien R to Gare de Lyon

Ivry-sur-Seine
It is a rather minor station, most RER C's trains skip this stop.





A train race, trains were running at exactly the same speed.

The platform where I'm standing

U leaving the station

On the left, you can see a T2.

L train on the left and U train on the center.

La Défense is the last stop of the U service, the U links la Defense to Saint Quentin en Yvelines.

L train to Saint-Lazare

Really? I wouldn't have guessed, being so close to Paris...

How many trains per hour does Ivry get in the morning rush and off-peak, and which are their destinations?

Well exactly, they're well connected there already. Only 10 minutes (on foot) away from that station there's also the metro station on the line 7. Also, a characteristic of suburbs right next to Paris is that they're well served by suburban buses, with several lines who start from the same place and share the first few kilometres until they split and go each on its own way.

Yes, one train has been preserved in its original form (thats mean, no facelift). You can see it on the left (sorry, it was not possible to take good pictures).

Has anyone ever come across a map or diagram of the Auber/St Lazare/Opéra complex? It's funny; Châtelet has been mapped out quite a bit, but I can't find anything on the layout of this possibly even more impressive complex.

There is a map of the whole complex at Auber but it is not accessible to the passengers.
One can only see it from a distance.

When I was in Paris last year, I made it a point to walk the entire length of the Havre Caumartin-Auber-Opera-Haussmann St Lazare complex. Each station is massive in its own right, but the three combined together are crazy.

In saying that, the way out from Haussmann to Havre Caumartin is not entirely obvious, and I only found the way out after many circuits around Haussmann. So for me it was an achievement!
