Those trains look very nice.

It's also good to see them having more standing room.

I just love the livery

Seems that they went with the previous MI2N trains inside arrangement though.

Refurbished MI79s look good but they completely mess up the coloring scheme. First line D, now line B...it's becoming a huge mess.

I found an old article of Popular Science (August 1972) relating the construction of Auber station.

Is it feasible to upgrade the RER C and RER D to the same standards as lines A and B?

^ Feasible, but very expensive! RER C represents 185 km of tracks and RER D 197km!! RER B and A represent 80km and 104km respectively and have twice the number of passengers than lines C and D. I think this is the reason why the Region doesnt consider the upgrade of these lines as a priority.

There is some upgrade ongoing on the RER C and D.

By exemple for the RER C the region will invest over €440 million.
-Renovation of the rolling stock
-Increase of the frequencies
-Increase of the speed in inner Paris
-Construction of new tracks between Juvisy and inner Paris.
etc...
RER C will lose the branch Massy - Palaiseau - Épinay-sur-Orge.

^ IMO, the big problem with the RER C is that the line has too many branches. Sometimes you have to wait a long time for the train that will take you to the branch you want! Increasing Frequencies won't arrange that problem.
They should double the tracks in central Paris and make two seperate lines.

I heard that some mission of the RER C could be separated of the line and transfered to the surface platforms of Austerlitz terminal.

There is nothing spectacular about the the renovation of the rolling stock.

But what exactly are they doing? Just updating the interiors a bit? I know a lot of the SNCF double decker trains have been repainted in their newer livery.

^ Updating the interior with new colored seats, better lighting, better design, flat screens, lit up maps and voice that indicates the stations for better information and yeah... a repainted exterior.
