Thank you, Minato.

Really, Z20900 trains have air-conditioning units between passenger saloon and driver's room, on first and last cars.

Rosny-Bois-Perrier
In the future, this station will become a big interchange with the extension of metro line 11 and the new metro line 15.

What exactly are they doing at Nanterre-Université, new platforms for the Cergy and Poissy branches?

A new passengers hall above the platforms with a new plaza and streets.
The whole area around the station is under in redevelopment.
The station was built over 40 years ago to be provisional and was undersized for the current and increasing traffic.

Another objective of the renovation / construction of this station is to link both RER and Suburban lins with the neighboring university which is also growing very quickly.
The present transfer from Line L from Paris St Lazare (where the new Francilien Z 50000 are now visible) to RER A line and vice versa is also a head ache. The new construction will also resolve this issue.
More information visible on various web sites in French.

Avenue du Président Kennedy - Maison de Radio France

Like Passy on metro line 6 (also in the same area), the station is underground and above the ground.

May someone please clarify what I'm seeing on Symbioz? There is now a mention that the plan to bring some MI 84 to the south has been scrapped?

I don't know but I am not surprised if it is true, from the beginning we knew that it would be very dificult to do.

Why would it be difficult?

The plan was to bring some MI 84 to a southern portion and a northern portion of the RER Line D, which is operated by SNCF. The MI 84 is operated by the RATP. That along brought along interoperability concerns.

This filming is temporary before the refurbishment.
The seat are the average seat on unrefurbished Z 8800, they didn't change those.

I don't know if France had a royal train, the monarchy ended at the start of the large scale train development.

First RER line, Paris-St. Germain-Le Pecq was opened in 1837. The two lines Paris-Versailles were opened 1839 and 1840.
So did Louis-Philippe get a royal train before 1848?
(And how about Imperial train? Monarchy lasted till 1870.)

There was no royal Train in France. However, there was an imperial train, built for Napoléon III. One of the cars still exists today :

http://www.citedutrain.com/fr/collec...train-imperial

And between 1913 and the eighties, there was a special presidential car that could be added to a train (if you want to read a funny story about a french President in a train : http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Deschanel - you can use Google translate).

About the decision to use some Mi 84 between Juvisy et Melun , no date has been given and it would be only temporary. But as it would be a simple shuttle service, then i think it's possible.

Ah, so Louis-Philippe did not bother getting his own train...

What do the original cars of RER C look like? The ones that did not burn with Dumont d´Urville?
