I thought every single train on RER A was a double-decker, it isn´t the case regarding the video.

The majority of the trains are single level on the RER A

MS61: 105 (35 three coupled trains)
MI84: 59 (29 two coupled trains)
MI2N: 43 (21 two coupled trains)

Nowadays only the MI2N is double decked but that will change with the arrival of the MI09.
The MI09 will first replace the MI84 and later the MS61.

I wonder if the new RER trains would have longitudinal seating at the ends of each coach, similar to the type of seating found on CityRail's double-deckers.

Example 1, Millenium stock.

It seems to be semi longitudinal.

MI09 parked at Sucy-Bonneuil.


The MI09 is not yet in service but it is already tagged.
Fortunately any train built since the end of the 1980's are equipped against this.

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.
At the end it's said that it's the most used of the world.

I have also read that.

Exaggeration, the RER A is the most used line in western Europe.
There are some busier lines in Moscow, in Tokyo and some other cities.

Oh my gosh, seriously. That's horrible. A brand spanking new train that is not even in regular passenger service yet is already vandalized by grafitti.

I think they need to definitely step up efforts to combat this. Taking the trains out of service and cleaning them right away will definitely help.

They should double the tracks in central Paris and make two seperate lines.
RER A has the same problem, but it's more severe with RER A than with RER C, in my opinion. A new underground route through Paris is needed from Nanterre to Fontenay, in order to divide RER A into two separate lines.

Don't you mean, "what is this?".

I'm assuming it's soundproofing or decoration.

Nanterre Université was build in 1972 as a temporary station before the construction of a new underground station, cancelled later.
So the temporary station is still here.
Work at Nanterre Université 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...
This is how could be Nanterre La Folie station.
