Does anybody know if issues on Francilien have been fixed ? We don't hear much about it anymore.

Usually new rolling stock have always probl at the beginning.
It was also the case of the MF01 for the Paris metro.

I love the Magenta station. I use it as a model for some of my fictional subway stations.

@HARTride

If the Magenta station had had that glass floor from 0.46s on a wide part from the lobby's floor the station would be more fictional Anyway it is one of the most fictional stations. It's enough

Gare du Nord.
Strike on the RER B, the interconnection between the RATP and SNCF is suspended.
The northern part (SNCF: Gare du Nord - CDG airport/Mitry Claye) depart from the surface suburban platform. We can see a Z50000 next to a MI79



Gare du Nord, last stop. To go further in the south, passengers should take the RATP RER B on the underground platforms (the usual platforms of the RER B when service is normal).

I have the answer of this mystery thanks to NicolasG, a member of Symbioz forum.
In August 1988, this MI84 was sent to Interlaken, to be a representative of the french railway industries for the 75th Anniversary of the Bern-Lötschberg-Simplon railway.

According to a recent RATP study, more than 96% of RER A passengers are satisfied or very satisfied with new MI09 rolling stock. 95% even seem to be satisfied with the new STIF/RATP-grey/blue design and the Darth Vader-shaped face.

Pereire Levallois

Track going to Pont Cardinet and Saint Lazare, not anymore on use.
Before 1985, it was used by the Auteuil line (Saint Lazare - Auteuil) and between 1988 and 1996 by a shuttle line between Pereire Levallois and Pont Cardinet.

The station opened in 2001, it is not what I would call old.

Neat video find of the "visionary" RER system.

For some reason, the video is called "Paris Metro" even though it is depicting the RER and not the Metro.



*Note: When I say "visionary", I am referring to the conceptual plan to expand that RER, which will not be happening (with the exception of the E extension through La Defense).

The Halles of Paris were demolished.
The Transatlantique HQ in Opera district was demolished to built the Auber RER station.




During the construction of the RER E, 98 buildings were damaged.

Regarding what has been demolished because of the building of RER, an indirect demolition is also the Bastille Station, that used to be the terminus of the Vincennes Surburban railways before the line was integrated to RER A (current branch from Vincennes to Boissy St Leger).

Here is a link of a picture of the former Bastille Station (where is now located the Opera Bastille) : http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...type=3&theater

But unlike Les Halles, the RER A could be built without demolishing Bastille station.
Infact the station was still here in mid 1980's. It was demolished because it was useless.
Without the demolition of Les Halles, the construction of Chatelet les Halles would have been more complicated or even impossible.
