Great! Thanks for the info. I saw this corridor in the "Justice - Stress" clip and always always wondered where it was.

@Minato: Is that purple livery permanent? Or is it just for a couple of months?

I don't know because the 30th anniversary of RER C was in September 2009.

Notice that the extension of RER E has been approved by the STIF from Haussmann - Saint-Lazare to Mantes-La-Jolie, by a new tunnel with underground stations at Neuilly - Porte Maillot, La Défense (CNIT) & a new station at Nanterre - La Folie to connect to the existing tracks.

Hello everyone. I've been lurking around this site forever and figure it's time to start saying something.

I recently came across this video on Youtube about a news report done on Line A from last year. I think it talks about overcrowding on the line, but that's just a guess based on the images. A proper description from someone who understands French would be very welcome

Yes you're right. They said, it's the biggest line in Europe that it's transporting more than 1 million people everyday and that people think the quality of service is bad. 60 000 people are transported in a hour it's the equivalence of a city as Sarcelles. A man said it's scandalous because the trains were always so full to get on that they have to wait for another train. Another man said it's everyday the same thing and that it will never change. During rush hours 600 employees are helping people in order to improve the quality of service but it was too hard because of the number of people using this line everydays.
