If you want my opinion, most central Paris RER stations need big renovation.
The rolling stock need some update.

yes for sure but if you have in mind this urban network was the first of this scale in europe ans was so innovative...

The refurbished cars are like new ones inside ans sooo good! Damn impressing

The network is old and they should rethink it but with the merto important works , you understand RATP has a lot to do...

Anyway RER still the most impressive inner suburban network.

I dream something like Line E for all Paris : the stations and rolling stock dazzles me

Do they plan a whole new line in the next 20 years?

I think the RER C stations near the city center are the worst.

In the central RER C, the situation is almost hopeless.
It was cheaply build using old railway tunnel.
We almost need to rebuild the whole central section to have an efficient line.

Outside the central section, the line is better but the huge number of branch decrease the frequencies of some routes.

so that's why it's so slow? i tooks about 30 minutes to get from Porte de Clichy to the center. i guess it's quicker to take Metro. although, i really like the bridge over the Seine, Especially when you look at Front de Seine. It's really picturesque IMO.

edit: i realised that i had already posted some pix and a video, but here's another one
Picture i took in November 2010 from Avenue Pdt Kennedy station:

When I took the RER C from Saint Michel-Notre Dame to Versailles, it took almost 15 minutes to get out of the tunnels, and the stations are horrifically hot and stuffy at times.

We had a brief discussion on this issue on prior posts.

Some video showing Paris RER (also the metro and other suburban train) in 1988.

I love the SNCF double decker trains. Especially the ones that are now in the blue livery.

I never got why RATP didn't take ownership over the entire lenght of the RER B line.

It opened on the 19th of december 1980, for the "Ville Nouvelle" Marne-la-Vallée. And since Marne-la-Vallée is quite modern, the station is too

The section between Gare du Nord and Mitry - Claye belongs to the "La Plaine - Hirson" railway line, which connects paris and belgium. There are quite a lot of TER trains which use that line, not only the RER trains.

At the very least, they could get rid of that whole 'changing of driver' business when the train comes to the border between the RATP and SNCF jurisdictions.

The station indeed opened in 1980, but the building shown in the picture which is the eastern entrance of the station opened in the early 2000's, ca. 2002 if I can remember correctly.
