Are those last trains slated for retirement soon? They look utterly old.

What is the purpose of the other suburban trains in a city which also has the RER? Do the other trains serve more distant areas? Or perhaps a more comfortable, premium service?

The RER is a system a five big lines, it doesn't cover the whole suburban railway network of Paris.
The other suburban trains are very diverse, it depend of the line.
Some like the and serve more distant area while the RER serve the closest area.
Some other serve the inner and outer suburbs with medium and high frequencies like the RER , and

In 2016, all the RIB-RIO rolling stock on the J network should be replaced by the Z50000.

The STIF (the transport authority of the Paris region) launch studies about the construction of a new tunnel between Chatelet les halles and Gare du Nord.

Quote:
Launching studies for the doubling of the Châtelet - Gare du Nord tunnel.

STIF Board approves funding for exploratory studies and feasibility of doubling the tunnel between Châtelet and Gare du Nord for €1.3 million.
The studies will be carried out by Réseau Ferré de France (RFF) and fully funded by STIF.
By doubling the capacity of the tunnel, the 1.2 million passengers daily of the RER B and D that pass each day through this tunnel could see their conditions of transport greatly improved.

Makes tons of sense. Hopefully, it will become reality.

We all hope so ! Today, there are only 8 trains per hour on RER D, because of this common tunnel...

Not necessarily. Some RER C stations like Saint Michel have low platforms, but that's all.

Ikea Builds, Furnishes Tiny Apartments in Paris Metro People living in the homes for a week
By David Kiefaber January 13 2012

To demonstrate how well it can furnish even the smallest space, Ikea built a couple of tiny apartments in a Paris metro station for five volunteers to live in for a week. This way, the public can bear witness to how effective Ikea's storage gear is, without the inherent fakery of a traditional ad campaign. Well, almost. After all, Ikea did build all the furniture before the volunteers moved in, which was a smart idea. Seeing angry people cursing and throwing things in frustration is common on American public transportation, but I'm not sure Paris could handle it.
http://www.adweek.com/adfreak/ikea-b...s-metro-137517



PS : 581 sq ft, it is not what I would call tiny by Parisian standar, I believe that most appartement inside the city limits are smaller.

The author is clueless to what can happen in Paris RER and metro.
Except New York subway, has anybody seen a network more crazy than Paris metro/RER ?

Several months ago, I remember Ikea actually replaced the normal plastic seats of the Paris metro with comfortable Ikea sofas.

That was a great concept as an advertisement.

He's talking about copper wires robbery. And indeed, the Paris RER is often victim of people stealing overhead lines in order to sell back their copper.

Wow! I did not know copper theft has become so desperate and widespread. This is sad indeed.
