SNCF orders Franciliens for Paris lines J and L
Monday, December 05, 2016



BOMBARDIER announced on December 5 that French National Railways (SNCF) has ordered 52 additional Francilien suburban EMUs for services on Transilien lines J and L from Paris Saint Lazare

The order, which is being financed by Il-de-France transport authority Stif, is part of a framework contract for up to 372 trains, which was signed in 2006. The trains will be assembled at Bombardier’s Crespin facility in Haute-de-France with deliveries due to begin in early 2018

A few months ago i said that I have a pic of a train hauled by a Jacquemin locomotive in one of the underground stations or the RER A.

Sadly, I'm still unable to find it...

...but yesterday I found this one ! It was taken in 1969 ; the train exits from the underground central section of the line just before Vincennes station :

I believe it was a test done before the opening of the new section to Nation.

Thank you so much for this. I've seen more recent photos of that tunnel portal, but this is the first time I've seen it around the time of opening. I would *love* it if photos existed of that site during RER A construction and seeing how the old Vincennes line operated around it.

The express connection between CDG Airport and Gare de l'Est has been voted and approved, in Parliament.

Is the RER system grade 100% grade separated making it a defacto Metro with fewer stations?

While the inner core is grade separated, I believe there are a few grade crossings in the outer areas where it doesn't matter as much.

I should note that its not necessary for a metro system to be 100% grade separated. Chicago, Tokyo, and Kansai all have grade crossings here and there.

Grade crossings are no problem for a high frequency rail systems, if they come with barriers. It is only an issue for car traffic flow on the affected roads. Of course, if there is a train every few minutes than the barrier would be constantly closed in which case it wouldn't really be a functional crossing any more. But this is again a problem for the cars, not the trains.

Where exactly are there any level crossings or flat junctions in the metro networks of Tokyo, Osaka or Kyoto? Or do you refer to main lines which carry through services of said metros?

On the Ginza Line near Asakusa.

I seem to recall there is one or two on the western end of the Marunouchi.

There is a semi-flat junction between the Yurakucho and Fukutoshin Lines.

In Kobe there are a few on the outer stretches.

Why do they always have such a preference for bay seats on RER stock? Most commuters are by themselves, and sitting that close to three other people can be uncomfortable.

The Crossrail solution of mixing bay seats and metro-style longitudinal seats seems much better.

So, the upper decks are for people traveling long distances, the lower decks are for people traveling shorter distances, and the vestibules are for short hops?

SNCF to renew Paris RER Line C catenary
Friday, February 03, 2017



FRENCH infrastructure manager SNCF Network has signed a €277m contract with RC2, a consortium of TSO Caténaires, Setec Ferroviare and ETF, for the renewal of overhead electrification on Paris RER Line C

The project involves renewing 180km of catenary on the section between Biliothéque François-Mitterrand and Brétigny (Essonne) with the installation of 2000 masts and 540km of cable

In the case of RER A, isn't that what the extension of RER E is for? With RER E taking over the Poissy branch, the Saint-Germain-en-Laye and Cergy-le-Haut branches will surely see higher frequencies.

Remember that the RER E extension won't open until 2020 at the earliest, so in the meantime there needs to be some interim action taken to improve the current lines until such point that the new RER E line comes into operation.

Yeah it is about punctual improvements of the current situation, like:

- the holistic approach to line A, so that it isn't opperated in two segments by two different operators requiring a conductor change in Nanterre that brings a lot of delays (just one example of bad planning due to double management of a line)
- back up trains for emergency situations
- the renewal of the trains in use on line L especially, which are really old and default during service A LOT of times (hence the strong necessity of backup trains)
- improvement of the communication of events in real time
- prohibiting freight trains on certain rails
- new rail switches along the lines and other new facilities
- raising the number of security teams with dogs to take care of suspect left objects, which have recently grown into possibly the main cause of delays
