76.5 km according to Wikipedia which surprises me because I thought it was much smaller (around 40 km at first thought)

Maybe they consider this 76,5 km as a single track lenght?

It hardly helps, does it! It really is dizzying.

Together with the Bank/Monument complex in London, this is the only station where I find it's better to head to the surface and then back down again than to find your connecting train underground.

We were waiting for it
Damn, hope the overflow won't be too much, and they can fix the casualties quickly. Too many people depends on this very line to move in the metropolis.
Also, it is to be one of the major line of Eurocup, for it will pass near many fanzones.

They say water level is gonna be very slow to go down so I'm afraid it's gonna take time before Line C reopens.

Are there any plans to separate B and D?

What about a RER Line F? Has anybody conceived any possible corridors for such a line?

There are some plans to built a new tunnel for the RER D but not on short or medium term period.
I don't think that there will be a RER F.

The last study showed that the construction is not planned as of today :

The construction would require a 9-12 month interruption for both RER B & D between Gare du Nord and Gare De lyon during a hypothetical construction. It also mean less train during that period.

The construction work would be very complex due to the busy underground around Châtelet.

Is has been said that the future lines would be enough to decrease the number of passenger transiting via both of those lines, also by adding a CBTC system to the central part of the RER B.

The RER F would have been a line between Montpanasse and Saint Lazare.

It was briefly mentionned in early stages in the 60s but it was too costly. The Line 13 of the metro was built instead (the line 13 is the result of the fusion of two lines formerly numbered 13 and 14 that were reunited in the 70s and follow the same path). The line F will probably not be built but this projet resurfaced periodically.

However, it would be a good thing 'cause the line 13 is totally overcrowded (to go from Saint Lazare to Montarnasse with luggages can be epic) and because the access to Montparnasse railway station from the subway is really laborious (the subway stations are in fact very far away from the railway station and people have to walk for a long time in an undergroud maze full of stairs with their bags...).


---------------

Former La Muette railway station, now closed ; croatian supporters in the front :




It's now a restaurant. It's on a closed section of the Petite Ceinture and is very close to Boulainvilliers RER station :

I am strongly reminded of the webcomic Megatokyo and its Ph34rb0ts.

They're finally making an attempt to standardize platforms nation-wide, correct?
