I think that people using the RER E will be the people leaving closer to RER E and people coming from the northern suburbs.
People coming for the north, by example northern RER B and B will a transfer at Magenta.

People coming for the south, southern RER B and D will continue to use the RER A.
There is a direct cross platform as Chatelet-Les-Halles between the northbound RER B and the westbound RER A (and the eastbound RER A and southbound RER B, this is pratical for people living in the south and working in the west) and the transfer between the RER D and RER A at Gare de Lyon is short (more people transfer there rather than Chatelet-Les-Halles between, both line).

He/she said that the station never carried its name that well.
Its name (Versailles-Chantiers) meaning Versailles-ConstructionSite

A short walkthrough of my least favourite station on the RER network in the centre of Paris - Auber.



RER A between Auber and Chatelet including a transfer between RER A and RER D at Chatelet.



Platform views at Chatelet Les Halles from the RER D platforms.



Gare de Lyon transfer from RER D to Metro Line 14.



La Défense RER A station to the main building.

This is Ouest Ceinture station
See posts #1586, #1586 and #1587 this station was in operation on Montparnasse suburban network (Transilien N) until 1986.
The building will be converted into office or retail space.

The station is called Ouest Ceinture,
Ouest because the train form Montparnasse serves the west (ouest = west in French)
Ceinture because this station is also on the Petite Ceinture (inner railway belt).

The highrise in hindsight is the Tour Montparnasse, next to Montparnasse station.

Btw, does any Transilien arrive/depart from Vaugirard?
And is Vaugirard considered a different station from Montparnasse in the same way as Bercy is considered a different station from Gare de Lyon?

Vaugirard is considered to be part of Gare Montparnasse.
This is the hall 3 of Montparnasse.
It is connected to the other halls unlike Bercy station which is seperated of Gare de Lyon.

No Transilien service departs of Vaugirard, this hall is served by TER trains.

Even worse, I think I see more MI 84 than MS 61 when I take the RER A.

A few videos of things not so often featured here.

Firstly, some tours of Saint-Lazare station (Europe's second busiest by some measures).

Saint-Lazare exterior 2014 08 12.





The suburban lines, TER and intercity - 2014 08 12.





Transfer from the Station to the Metro - 2014 08 12.

Two rather lesser seen videos - firstly at Saint-Cloud station at platform level.




Next - a long ride on the upper deck of a Transilien line U from Saint-Cloud all the way to La Défense.
