Good news since the rail solution was so far out of agenda, a BRT line being encouraged instead.

I thought RER used low platforms, or do they use both high and low?

Well basically, stations that are managed and build by the RATP have high platforms.

SNCF's stations mostly have low platforms, still there are some exceptions such as CDG 2 Airport station on the B line which has high platforms.

RER trains are designed to cope with both high and low platforms either by having a step in front of the doors that can raise or lower depending on the height of the platform (Mi79/84, MI2N RATP), or have a fixed low step (Z20500, Z20900, Z5600, Z8800)

All stations on RER A (SNCF and RATP) have high platforms.

Minato Ku, you as a local, can you make me understand all the mix of means of transport in Paris region? I was in Paris in July and had the opportunity to come to la Defense. I also took a tram there. I was really impressed that you have metro, tram, RER and trains de banlieue there. What is the difference between ReR and these trains? And I guess you also have regular trains that are also different.

In fact, RER are "just" trains who run through the region, with special infrastructures in the very center of Paris.

Look at RER D : it uses the same tracks after Gare du Nord and Gare de Lyon than the "trains de banlieue", but it has special tracks betwwen Gare du Nord & Gare de Lyon (in fact, the tunnel between Châtelet-Les Halles & Gare du Nord is shared with RER B).

Sometimes, RER have specific tracks outside Paris : it's case of RER A, except the branche of Poissy & Cergy ; all other line is on dedicated tracks, not shared with another trains.

Not completly true, the RER D in its northern part has its own tracks (where only the RER D run) even if it is not as segregated with the rest of the railway network as in the RATP RER.

Saint-Denis

The RER D only use this island platform where I am standing (the double decker blue train is not part of the RER D, it comes from surface suburban platforms of Gare du Nord)

Two RER D trains (left going to the north and right going to the south).

Awesome!

2011 is so filled with many milestones when it comes to rolling stock. We see the MI 09 on the RER A, the refurbished MI 79 on the RER B, and on the Metro, the MP 89CC on Line 4, MF 01 on Line 5, and MP 05 on Line 1!
