This friday (April 17th) was a pretty bad day for the RER network.
A big fire in a warehouse in La Courneuve has stopped the traffic on the northern RER B (also on the Transilien K, some TER Picardie services and the A86 freeway in the area).



RER E services were diverted to Gare de l'Est because of a power failure.

Trains are most operated with serveral unit. The number of cars can change depending the distination on the RER C and D.

RER A
MS 61: 3x3 cars 225m
MI 84: 2x4 cars 210m
MI2N/MI09: 2x5 cars 225m

RER B
MI 79/MI 84: 2x4 cars 210m

RER E
MI2N: 2x5 cars 225m

Note that the RER A and B have shorter trains late in the night and in weekends and the RER E has some shorter trains outside rush hours.
Thanks a lot. Well, considering that RER is actually a metro system, that's probably the longest trains in the world, no?

What's the problem with lines C and D?

^RER is suburban rail, it's just that it goes under the city centre too, like a metro.

Anyone know what the viaduc de Colombes is? I can only think of the elevated section of the railway, where the station is, in city centre. Anyway, there's heavy work there and line J has been suspended completely this weekend.

NYC subway operates 10-11 car trains. NYC commuter reaches up to 12 cars.

Tokyo subway is 10 cars. The commuter trains reach 15 cars.

In many Asian cities metro lines go far far away from the city area. So, it's not the problem. Then again, RER goes downtown and it forgoes underground there, so it shows all the signs of a metro system.

15 cars on what line? I've never seen more than 10 on many of Jr lines with an exception for Yamanote (11), Tokyo subway has got small cars.

The same for NY. 10-11 car trains are those with small cars. But maybe you right with the commuter NY trains, I don't know much about them.

On the JR system, the Joban line is one - it runs 15 car trains. The Shonan-Shinjuku line often sees 15 cars linking up through to Utsunomiya on the Utsunomiya line. I'm sure there are others too.

Tokyo Metro trains are not that small. They're 20 metres long and run as 10 car sets on many lines - take a look at the Chiyoda Line for example. That means 200m long - equally for the Yurakucho, Fukutoshin, Tozai and Hanzomon lines. The Hibiya line runs 180m trains. The Namboku line, Ginza line and Marunouchi lines run shorter trains.

In that case, those Asian metro networks also deviate from what a metro strictly is and go more towards what the RER is (a regional rapid transit network).

Until about 2025 when Crossrail adds two cars to its 9-car 200m trains (to make >240m trains), it's highly likely.

Thameslink in London will have 240m 12-car trains, but that, instead of like Crossrail and most of the RER network, is on the wrong side of the regional/suburban high-frequency rail services that run through a city divide.

But number of cars != length.

Looking, however, NYC subway trains are around the 200m ballpark, which surprised me.

There used to be 12 carriages trains on RER D on limited peak hours services from Gare de Lyon. They were serviced by 3 set of 4 carriages trains, either Z5300 or double decked trains.
I don't know if they are still operating.

I heard about 260m train on the RER D.

Nowaday, the single deck Z5300 are only operated on the Juvisy - Melun service.

Do RER trains have AC on them?

Most RER A trains (MI2N and MI09), the refurbished RER B trains and some RER C trains.
RER D and RER E trains don't have AC.

The majority of suburban trains have AC.

Sorry Minato but RER E trains do have AC. The rolling stock is almost the same than the MI2N.
