The line C was just a project of the Nord-Sud Company, but was built by the CMP with the number 14.

Saint Lazare is a wonderful station. Too bad I never got to go there.

Gare du Nord is also very nice.

Ahh you are an ignorant. LIRR and Metro North are part of state-run MTA. Path trains are operated by NY NJ Port Authority. They are all public agencies.

The picture is of Haussmann Saint Lazare Station, the current terminus of RER line E. Although it is connected to Saint Lazare, Saint Lazare is actually a different station and is very different to the pictures you see above.

Anyway this is the same hub, so it can be considered at the same station.
Here some picture of Saint Lazare.









Some entrance of Haussmann Saint Lazare

If it were all the same station it would have 1 name. In reality it is a complex of several different stations which are connected for the purpose of interchange.

The great pictures posted of Saint Lazare and Haussmann Saint Lazare Station clearly show the difference.

I have always like Saint Lazare station for some reason, maybe because it was the first station I ever set foot in in Paris back in 1999. I was staying across the road in Hotel Britannia on Rue d'Amsterdam.

By 2011 these trains will run on the RER A.

Hi there (salut ).
I have two questions:

1) How easy it is for a non-francilien to get used to this "VICK","ZEUS", "EALA" and so on that you see in the screens?
And how to interpret them, what do they exactly mean, knowing it is the destination?

2) I have in my mind an extensive trip to Paris and the IDF to explore the Metro/RER/Transilien, the main question is: is there any particularly DANGEROUS line or station (Gare du Nord, La Courneuve, Aulnay sous Bois or Garges-Sarcelles come to my mind, but maybe I am wrong)?

1) You can make your way without using those codes if you check your destination on the screens.
2) Metro is safe everywhere. For the RER lines A, B and E are usually safe. Gare du Nord and Aulnay should be safe at anytime, the others are ok during the day. You may want to avoid showing your brand new laptop on line D and on the southern part of line C late at night, but nothing to get too worry about..

Looks like a much older station. When was it constructed?

This station was rebuilt in 1930's as most stations of the ex-Sceaux line (now the southern part of the RER B).

The whole station with the exception of the platform was refurbished in 2005-2006. (I used to take this station when I lived in Cachan)

So, lines A, B and possibly E are more MRT-like.

I wonder why lines C and D have not become part of Transilien, as they are basically suburban lines.

I think they were previously suburban lines (back then they probably had names like Sceaux Line (and maybe operated by private company). In any case, if they did became Transilien network trains, than they would be unconventionally Transilien in the fact they would cross the City of Paris because Transilien trains dead-end at train stations (or start, depending the direction) inside the City (except for one Transilien line that does not enter Paris at all). I don't see a reason why that would disqualify it as a Transilien personally. Really, in my opinion, Transilien should be cross-city too like RER. Combined, that would make for a huge, enormous commuter rail system.

By the way, RER is such a perfect acronym as it conveniently works for 3 major languages:

Réseau Express Régional (French/original)
Regional Express Rail (English)
Red Express Regional (Spanish)
Rete Espressa Regionale (Italien)
