No, the MI2N of the RER E don't have A/C unlike the MI2N of the RER A.

SNCF orders 19 more Francilien EMUs
06 May 2015





FRANCE: SNCF has exercised a €127m option for a further 19 Francilien electric multiple-units, Bombardier announced on May 6. The order is to be financed Ile-de-France transport authority STIF.

The Francilien single-deck eight-car commuter EMUs have a capacity of 1 000 passengers, with wide gangways and doors to facilitate passenger flow. The latest batch is scheduled for delivery between the end of 2016 and mid-2017, and will be used on Transilien Line L on the Versailles Rive Droite branch

Back at home - with some pictures.

And now for some abandoned stations

Pont Cardinet is still in operation (line L) ; but this platform of the station is unused since 1985 : it was part of the former ligne d'Auteuil (between Boulogne-Auteuil and Saint Lazare), now closed :





Boulogne-Auteuil :



The tracks were removed a few years ago to make room for new buildings ; construction is currently on the way :



In front of the station, the old maps and information panels still stands...



...in their 1985 state ! That means, no RER E, no line 14, no Transilien...



The ground floor, now a restaurant :



And a few meters from there, one of the entrance of the metro station (Porte d'Auteuil, line 10) :

It is closed only since 1996 actually , because from 1985 to 1996 a shuttle service existed between this station and Pereire-Levallois station (in order to create a connection between the St-Lazare suburban lines at Pont Cardinet and the RER C at Pereire).

Here are two pics taken at Pont Cardinet the last day of service of this shuttle in 96:

As Parcdesprinces said the platform ended service in 1996 with the end of the railway shuttle linking Pont Cardinet with Pereire (RER C). This service is now operated with buses.

The map is from the mid 90's, there is the line 1 to La Défense, this extension opened in 1992.
The RER D is going to the southeast, this only happened in 1995 with the opening of the tunnel between Chatelet-les-Halles and Gare de Lyon.

Yes, you are right (both of you), I made a confusion : the line was temporary closed in 1985 (during the works on the VMI) but reopened later.

The southern section of the line was definitely closed in 1993, the northern section in 1996.

I remember very well the shuttle between Pereire and Pont Cardinet ; it was really a joke : trains were so scarce that a pedestrian was faster than the trains ; quite nobody really did use them.


Edit : near Pont Cardinet (the station is in the background) :



This place, now Martin Luther king park, was formerly the Batignolles freight station, where arrived a great part of the food for the central market of Paris (Les Halles).

The tracks between Pont Cardinet and Saint Lazare are ont he right, behind the wall.

Many remnants of the freight station can be seen in the park, especially old tracks.

Why will those RER A pictures no longer be possible?

Rolling stock replacement?

Reassignment of route?

Nanterre-Université
The widening of the island platform of the RER A is completed.
The westbound side of the platform has reopened.

ATO to boost capacity on Paris RER Line A
10 Jun 2015



FRANCE: Alstom Transport has been selected to develop and install automatic train operation on Paris RER Line A under a €20m contract awarded by city transport operator RATP, the Ile-de-France region and transport authority STIF.

The introduction of attended ATO that meets Grade of Automation 2 is expected to improve performance and boost capacity on Line A, which is currently carrying around 1·2 million passengers/day. It will allow headways to be reduced and service frequencies increased, while reducing the journey time through the central core between Vincennes and La Défense by about 2 min

Pereire-Levallois (RER C, VMI branch) :



On the left, the tunnel to St Ouen ; on the right, the former line to Pont Cardinet, now permanently closed :





We can clearly see that the tracks were formerly in a trench that was later covered.


I will probably live in Levallois for 6 months (maybe more), relatively close to this station.
