I don't like this map.
Especially because of it has some bus lines included, this is very messy.
RATP map is much better.

I noticed an error just here, the J doesn't stop at Nanterre Université, it doesn't pass by Nanterre Université.

This is how it is in reality, the J uses a bridge located before Nanterre Université station.

Charles-de-Gaulle Airport rail link project relaunched
24 Jan 2014



FRANCE: A dedicated airport rail link between Paris Est and Charles-de-Gaulle Airport could begin operating in 2023 under a €1·7bn-€1·9bn project announced by Transport Minister Frédéric Cuvillier on January 23.

Speaking at an event in the airport's Terminal 3 organised by Aéroports de Paris, the minister said the project would be led by a 50:50 joint venture which was founded last year by ADP and infrastructure manager RFF. Previous abortive attempts to develop the CDG Express had been led by private sector promoters or envisaged some form of PPP.

At present the airport is linked to the centre of Paris by a branch of RER Line B, which offers 28 through trains each way per day and a 15 min headway at peak times. Journey time is around 35 min. It is also served by inter-regional TGVs using LGV Interconnexion to bypass the capital. With ADP projecting that traffic through the airport will double from the current 60 million passengers/year over the next decade, another rail link is seen as essential.

The latest proposal envisages the same 40 km route which was awarded a Declaration of Public Utility in 2008. This would use 32 km of existing tracks and 8 km of new construction. The CDG Express trains would start from Paris Est, and pass through a short tunnelled connection to join the route out of Paris Nord, where they would share the long-distance tracks paralleling RER Line B. A new branch would diverge at Mitry-Mory and run north into the airport alongside the LGV.

At this stage the government has not decided on an operator for the service, although the ministry says it is not strongly minded to call competitive tenders unless required to do so under European legislation. At present SNCF has exclusive operating rights to run domestic passenger services on the national network, but RATP President Pierre Mongin has proposed that the urban and national operators should form another 50:50 joint venture.

CDG Express would offer a train every 15 min between 05.00 and midnight, with a journey time of 20 min. A fare of €24 is envisaged, which would be more the €9·75 RER fare but competitive with the average taxi fare of €60. To help recoup the capital cost of the project, Cuvillier envisages that the scheme could be partially funded by a tax on airline tickets.

La Défense.
Map, layout and rendering
The new RER station will be built under the CNIT building.

View of the whole station of La Defense.
RER A platforms, RER E platforms (Gare Eole), suburban rail and T2 platforms (Quais du Transilien et T2) and the metro line 1 platforms (under Coeur transport).

Really marelous and beautiful. And looking to the plans there would be inclined lifts. In fact, did anyone know, how many RER and metro stations in Paris with these lifts?

RER MS 61 M15153 at Auber by κύριαsity, on Flickr

Got the first ride on MS 61 M.15153, the Parisian equivalent of the recently withdrawn A Stock in London.

There are inclined lift at Nation, Châtelet les Halles, Charles de Gaulle Etoile on the RER A, at Saint-Lazare for the metro.


Except for Saint-Lazare, those were built in place of escalators or stairs.

Denfert-Rochereau
A new terminal platform is under in construction.
This is the enlargement of the unusued platform 3, it was used as garage.

In case of disrupted traffic in the central section, some trains from the south will terminate here.
Denfert Rochereau provides a connection with two metro lines, this is better than nothing for the southern suburban commuters.

Absolutely wonderful.
You can feel Akihabara and the Otaku subculture in those videos.

Clichy - Levallois
The station building has been nicely renovated...

...but not the platforms.
Z 50000 leaving the station and Z 6400 passing through it.



An other non stop Z 6400

A little race between a Z 6400 and a Z 50000.
Start of the race: Bécon-les-Bruyères.





End of the race: Asnières-sur-Seine
After Asnières-sur-Seine the Z 6400 goes non stop to Saint Lazare while the Z 50000 stops at every stations.




Both trains are inner suburbs services.
The Z 6400 was a service between Saint-Cloud and Lazare, it serves every stops between Saint-Cloud and Bécon-les-Bruyères, in rush hours some trains also stops at Asnières-sur-Seine.
The Z 50000 was a service between Nanterre-Université and Saint-Lazare, it serves every stops.

The step up on the train is massive (on the left hand side)
