I have seen some information about the withdrawal of the MS 61 and MI 84 of the RER A.
The last MS 61 should be removedat the end of 2016 and the last MI84 in mid 2017.

It confirms what we see on the ground, the withdrawal of the MS 61 is faster than the withdrawal of the MI 84.

I love abandoned stations

Here's another one : Gare de Reuilly (48.840357, 2.392440). Renovated, it's now an administrative building.



It was located on the now closed Bastille line, that ran from the Bastille railway station (destroyed in 1984 ; the Opéra Bastille was build on the same location ; both buildings have similarities : the station was not really beautiful, and the Opera is one of the ugliest buildings in Paris ) and was replaced by the central section of the RER A.

Paris Gare du Nord remodelling plans announced
Thursday, June 25, 2015




Artist's impression of the redesigned RER Line B platforms at Gare du Nord

SNCF CEO Mr Guillaume Pepy and the mayor of Paris Ms Anne Hidalgo presented plans on June 24 to expand capacity at Gare du Nord, Paris' busiest station which is used by up to 800,000 passengers per day

The first phase includes restoration of the existing buildings dating back to the 1860s and significant expansion of the space available for Eurostar services to London, with new mezzanine waiting areas envisaged above the tracks and a new business class lounge in space formerly used as a hotel. This phase also includes the refurbishment of the underground four-track RER station serving lines B and D, which is used by 80% of Gare du Nord passengers.

The first phase should be completed by 2018 as part of improvements totalling €500m being undertaken by SNCF at other major Paris stations

Gare Saint Lazare
There is nothing unusal about the pictures, it is just the average evening rush.

When the E extension opens, Montparnasse will be the only terminus without a RER connection, correct?

No, there is also Gare de l'Est (well even if Magenta/Gare du Nord is close), it is not directly connected to the RER.
For the moment the underground connection between Magenta/Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est is in standby.
Maybe with the CDG Express and for Olympic game 2024 and Expo 2025, they will decide to build this connection.

I also forgot the small Paris Bercy terminal

It's probably a day with a lot of delays, cancelled trains etc. Because I use it a lot now, I have traffic notifications for lines J and L, and there are days with LOADS of problems. Otherwise it can be much less crowded even at rush hour.

It was today.
There were no major disruption at this time, I think that it is just that there are several trains that will leave this part of the station at the same time.
Trains are not announced yet when they will be announced all these people will join their trains.

The number of people here can quickly fluctuate.

The western side of the RER A during this summer (end of July and August).
Closure of the line between Auber and La Défense, no RER A service to Poissy and closure of Cergy Prefecture station.



The L services terminating at Maisons Laffitte will be extended to Poissy during this time.

Parc des Expositions
For the big Japan Expo convention, they put a signage similar to those on Japanese train stations.

I wonder, why do temperatures approaching 30 degrees celsius make it so hard for SNCF to run trains in the IdF? I mean, it's the same SNCF that successfully runs trains in the south of France, where 30 degrees is the normal average high in summer.

Can't say I'm a heavy user of suburban rail so it was this time that I first noticed the existence of trains without ventilation, nevermind air conditioning (on lines B and E). Conditions close to fainting from the greenhouse effect.

The famous "travaux Castor".
This section of the RER closes every summer to renovate the tunnel, this tunnel is old and next to the Seine river.

These works are underway every summer since 1996 and it is far from finished.

This year, the section closed is bigger than usually.
Usually it was only the section between Gare d'Austerlitz and Invalides that the line was closed.
During this summer 2015, it will be between Gare d'Austerlitz and Javel/Avenue Henri Martin.



Some videos about the "travaux Castor".
