Speaking of the Transilien N, with the summer timetable it seems that there is no Z 5300 in operation.
All the services seem to be done by VB 2N.

Paris Montparnasse

The VB 2N with a C(number) are from Transilien H to replace the old Z 5300.
Those cars are pulled or pushed by BB 7600 electric locomotives.



The VB 2N with a 7(letter) are pulled or pushed by BB 27300 electric locomotives.

Those last two stations are really fantastic. I love the polished concrete in the last one.

Tres magnifique!

Too bad if this line become 100% double decked.
The 4 carriages single decked Z5300 are much safer than the VB2N for the late evening services.
This network miss single decked modern short trains to replace the Z5300 for the off-peak services. Those trains could be used for the Sèvres-Montparnasse shuttles during the peak hours or on other less used peak services.

I guess he's talking about social safety.

Certain single deck trains are made so you can look from one end of the train all the way to the other. Not a lot of places to do illicit things.

Yes. Passengers are safer when they all are in the same 2 carriages. It's why, on some trains of the line U, 2 carriages on 4 are locked for the last services.
It's also much easier for the security staff to monitor those trains.
Considering the security issues that we have in France those days and the lack of staff in the stationand trains it would be totaly stupid to use 7 or 8 carriages double decked trains at night in those kind of suburbs.

These carriages are closed so passengers can feel safer. Barely nothing ever happens in suburban trains.

N network mostly serves wealthy and upper middle class suburbs, it is not the RER D.
You can feel unsafe when you are alone in the train but it is the same as everywhere.

Z 22500 (MI2N Eole) and Z 50000 at Gare de l'Est

Z 20500 and Z 50000.

We can notice how big is the Z 50000.

N network indeed serves wealthy suburbs but also some rough areas just like the very poor housing projects put in the middle of nowhere of Coignières, Bois de l'Etang (la Verrière) and les Merisiers (Trappes). And, for having used the last trains of this line many times I can tell you that it's not a relaxing experience. I'm not paranoid and I don't like to focus on crime but it's a fact that violence does take place on those trains.

I don´t think so, I´d say it´s more a matter of lack of space.

Massy Palaiseau is made of two stations (three if we count the underground TGV station),
the RER B of the RATP and the RER C of the SNCF.
There is over 100m between the two stations but both are linked by a skywalk building.

Between the two stations, there are the maintenance facilities of the RER B and a freight yard of the SNCF.



Infact as you see in the previous picture there is a cross platform interchange at Massy - Verrieres station between the RER B and the branch Massy Palaiseau by Pont de Rungis - Aéroport d'Orly of the RER C but the frequency of the RER C here is very low (2tph).
Most of the trains of this branch terminate at Pont de Rungis - Aéroport d'Orly and don't reach Massy.

A map of the RER C to understand better. (RER C = )

There is a very nice view over Paris from footbridge
over the platforms.
Saint-Cloud is located on a hill
