It would be nice if any new rolling stock for the RER B line was something akin to the Hong Kong MTR trains, with the seating arrangement of the Toronto Rocket trains.

it's good to say that paris has probably the best suburbs-inner rail connections! Even if stations for their most part are outdated, the principe is very good and trains fleet is renewed with amazing new engine like the Z50000

You means the NAT or Z50000.


This train doesn't and will not run on the RER network but on other suburban lines.
There are already 10 train running on the (Line Paris Nord - Luzarches)

Here the thread for the non RER suburban train.

Because the Région wanted this specific train in replacement of older rolling stock on the suburban network, whereas for some time now all latest orders for the RER network have been double-decker trains : Z 20500, 22500, 20900 ; and in the future : MI 09

Oh, alright. I didn't know it wasn't supposed to ride the RER lines, I've read on a newspaper that SNCF was planning to use it on the Ile de France routes and that automatically read "RER" to me! Bad luck, 'cause I really wanted to try it to and fro CDG.

I aswered you here
_____________________________________________

Villepinte


Notice that we see the heightening work of the oposite platform.
All the platforms on the northern RER B will be raised to be gap free or at least to have a lower gap.

Villepinte is on the branch serving the CDG airport, two stations before or after the airport.
From the train you could beleive that this station is inside a rural area but this impression is wrong, this is only a big park inside urbanised area.

The western extention is not only a big tunnel between Saint Lazare and La Défense.
After La Défense, the line will use existing track to Mantes la Jolie.
The central tunnel will emerge near Nanterre la Folie, today a freight and service station.


This is Nanterre la Folie station.
By 2020 a RER station will located here and the area around will be redeveloped with residential and office buildings, a big arena...


These tracks are currently not used by passagers train, this will change with the RER E.

Does it mean that RER E will replace some trains which are currently served by non-RER Transilien lines?
