Clichy Levallois.
While only 24 trains per hour (12tph per way) stop here in rush hour, there is about 130 trains per hour that pass through this station in rush hours.

Trains return to normal after thousands stranded in Paris following railway incident
By RFI, November 08, 2012

Tens of thousands of passengers were blocked at a Paris train station on Wednesday evening, after an incident caused train delays and cancellations into the night. Two train conductors were victims of attacks, one of whom was hospitalised, by passengers angered by the slowdown.
What began as an electrical problem in the Paris suburb of Seine-et-Marne at 17h45 turned into an incident affecting nearly 50,000 people.

International train lines running to Britain, Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany ran late by around one hour, with one Eurostar train delayed for three hours.

It was commuter trains between Paris and its suburbs that were the most affected, where no trains were running for several hours. Thousands were left stranded at Paris’s Gare du Nord station until after midnight with no way to get home.

While the technical problem was fixed at around 18h40, some passengers exasperated by the lack of trains and information took to the rail tracks. The RATP, which runs the commuter train lines, was forced to cut electricity and stop all train traffic for security reasons.

“It was a snowball effect. Once people went onto the rails, it blocked all further traffic,” the spokesperson for the SNCF railway company, Antoine Debièvre told the AFP news agency.

On one commuter line, passengers were promised a bus once they reached a stop in the outerlying suburbs. However, when they arrived, the buses were not there and many were forced to pay for a taxi home.

"After waiting for hours in the dark between two stops, they promised that there would be buses... but then nothing," one commuter told the AFP news agency. "They must be joking. How am I supposed to pay for a taxi? I don't have any money."

By Thursday, train travel was up and running normally.

Paris’s railway system serves around 3 million passengers on 7,500 trains everyday, representing 40 per cent of the country’s railway traffic.

Some errors, it was the SNCF, not the RATP and Paris suburban railway system serves over 4 million people on working day.

It goes from Gare the Lyon all the way to Melun without stoping? That's a realy long distance for a commuter train.
Also, Montargis station is very far from Paris. Also extremelly far for a commuter trains.

I think this is an interesting option though. Putting the transilien serving only the distant stations that aren't served by the RER.

Don't forget that all the way between Gare de Lyon and Melun is served by the RER D.
Like the Transilien P (Gare de l'Est), this network serve the outer part of Paris metropolitan area.

Montargis while not inside Paris metropolitan area is just at the edge.
Paris metropolitan extends on a large area because of an extremely good reason, there aren't any large city close to Paris.

Even Montargis is not big, only 69,692 lived in it's metropolitan area.

SNCF sells off ‘Petits Gris’
December 14, 2012

SNCF is selling off benches, baggage racks and even stainless steel doors from its famous “Petits Gris” trains in Paris as they get set to roll for the last time after 75 years.

The auction comes as the grey stainless steel electric-powered Z6100, with its distinctive corrugated sides, is being taken out of service after running continuously on the Paris train network since 1960. It will make its last run on the Ligne H in Paris Nord at the end of this month.

Mementoes go on display today in an exhibition on the forecourt of Gare Saint-Lazare in Paris and will then be sold at auction at the station on Tuesday, December 18 with all proceeds going to the Restos du Coeur food charity .

The sale includes 150 items plus 10 that have been “redesigned” as feature pieces: train banquettes benches reupholstered to look like theatre seats or modern art. The “ordinary” items include handrails, front and rear lights, doors – either single or a pair - an alarm bell, braking wheel, speedo, an SNCF plaque and a driver’s seat.

First used on the Paris-Crépy-en-Valois and Paris-Creil route in 1961, the Petits Gris were the mainstay of the Ile-de-France rail network for decades, despite the lack of comfort and modern fittings.

The last three trains will be taken out of service on December 31. They date from 1970-71 and it is estimated each has covered 3.7million kilometres in that time.

SNCF will send many of the trains to be scrapped but is also in discussions with rail companies across Europe for them to stay in use. Rail fans have also expressed interest.

Alongside the last trains, the end of the year also marks the closure of the Chapelle rail depot in the 18th arrondissement.

Tracks after Bibliothèque François Mitterrand, at the former Boulevard Massena station.
We can see a bit of the platforms of the former station

In few years this hole will be covered by buildings.

Boulevard Massena station building.
This station closed when Bibliothèque François Mitterrand opened in 2000.

Paris RER Line E extension approved
Written by David Briginshaw, Friday, February 01, 2013

THE prefects of Paris and three Ile-de-France local authorities have granted final approval, known as the declaration of public utility in France, for the extension of RER Line E from Haussmann-St Lazare 47km west to Mantes-la-Jolie.

Final design and cost optimisation is already underway and should be completed in the autumn allowing construction to start next year. The extension is due to open in 2020.
The €2bn project entails constructing an 8km tunnel from St Lazare to La Défense and upgrading an existing line between there, Poissy and Mantes-la-Jolie. The extension will cut journey times between western suburbs and La Défense, an important commercial centre on the west side of Paris, by up to 17 minutes. It will also provide existing Line E passengers with direct access to La Défense, and will relieve congestion by between 10 and 15% on the Auber – La Défense section of RER Line A, which Line E will parallel, and part of RER Line B.

The extension will connect with RER lines A and C, metro Line 1, tram Line T2, several commuter lines, and the future Orange, Red and Green lines of the orbital Grand Paris Express network. When the extension opens Line E is expected to carry 89,000 passenger per hour in the morning peak and 620,000 passengers a day.

Example of the new signage that will be installed at Chatelet-les-Halles.
The station is being renovated, the renovation work will end in 2016.




A new exit to the Forum des Halles shopping mall (Porte Rambuteaux) will open in the end of 2013.
