Such a lovely station.

Imagine having a connection here to the Metro Line 15 within 30 years......should the two "bis" lines be merged.

Z50000 also called NAT or Francillien.
This rolling stock is replacing Z5300 and Z6100, the awfull grey old trains.

The most unusual thing of this train is its colorfull interior.

How old are these trains? They definitely seem to be at the end of their useful lives.

I took one this Thursday, it was horrible.
The Z5300 where built between 1965 and 1975.
Many have already been withdrawn but still many are still in service, it is the newest that were taken out of the service first (since 2003).

Those on Montparnasse network were built between 1965 and 1972.
According what say Wikipedia, the train will began to be withdrawn in N network by April 2012.

So they are effectively at the end of their life.

The current oldest still in service is the number 03 (Z5303), the two first were withdrawn in 1993 and 2011.
Why 1993 for the Z5301 ? Because this is one of the trains involved in the crash of 1988 at the Gare de Lyon.

It's not a TER. That's an "Intercités" train coming from Granville heading to Paris-Pasteur. It's written "Train Corail" on its side even if, of course, the rolling stock is not Corail.
This 3 carriages railcar X72000 is one the first "modern" railcars ordered by SNCF at the end of the 90'. This rolling appears to be extremely unreliable and uncomfortable compared to the old rolling stock from the 60' it has replaced.

It's pretty useless when you're trying to know fast where your train is, but it's great for those not feeling confident about which train they have to take.

Tracks of the RER C inside Gare d'Austerlitz from metro line 5 platform


In the post 999, I wrote about the renovation of Austerlitz station.
The picture shows how big and complicated will be the renovation.
This area will be reclaimed for the passengers.

I'm guessing the area was a lot more desolate before renovation began?

Well the renovation just started by the demolition of the "Buffet de la Gare" building.
Nothing have been done here.


In this render, we see the bridge of the line 5 inside the station.
I wonder how they will do with the RER C tracks.

I posted pics in the previous page.
Nanterre Université is far to be finished, we are still at the beginning of the work.
The new station will open by 2014.
Excepted a new exit on the back of the station and a a concrete slab above (where will stand the new station building) there is still nothing to see.

I believe you mentioned somewhere that Gare de l'est lost some of its surface rail traffic over the years. How many lines depart from Gare de l'est?
