Just three days ago I was in Paris and what struck me was the difference in commutation of different RER lines. The closure at line A was excellently communicated. There were posters at almost every station, often in trains and there were frequently announcements in up to five languages. On the other hand the closure of line C was nowhere to be seen. Only at the closed stations the line was taped off. Even at the entrances of the closed stations there was barely any information, just fences that blocked the entrances.

This is because the C line has been closed every summer since 1996, so for Parisians there is no surprise. This year is the first year of closure for the A, with 3 more years of full closure and two years of early evening closure already scheduled after this. Moreover, there are more than twice as many passengers on the A than on the C (300M / 140M a year).

A last reason might be that RATP operates both line A and the metro, but not line C.

There is no link between individual tickets and the navigo pass.

But the weekly/monthly/annual service is very cheap compared to tickets. If you only stay within zone 1, there is not a lot of difference for 10 trips a wekk. But if you want to go further (La Défense is zone 3, Versailles is zone 4, etc.) the new navigo will be a much better option.

The "Paris Visite" prices proposed to tourists are much more expensive, but might acceptable if you want to make use of all the price reductions in museums. But if I were to visit, I'd rather pay 5€ once for a 'Navigo Découverte' and take one or two weekly passes.

La Varenne – Chennevières

RER MS 61 M.15100 at La Varenne – Chennevières by Antje, on Flickr

Hi,

So far, I have this, this and this along with interior and exterior photographs to help me work on a possibility of making a accurate MS 61 model. I obviously speak very little French so I wonder if anyone here can help me find more diagrams or detailed photos of the cab and the roof of the MS 61 train, as well as clean motor sounds without announcements interrupting the deceleration?

I can’t go back to Paris yet: I’m too busy.

Thanks in advance.

Saint-Maur – Créteil


Tried to make a side-view collage with underfloor equipment but another MS 61 pulled up in font of it.

There's a diagram here :

But I'm quite sure that I have a more detailed one. I'll search when I'll be back to home in a few weeks.


You know now how I like to walk along abandoned tracks and especially those of the Petite ceinture

Here are some parts of the northern section.

They have changed the announcements for station on the trains of the RER A and B
Here a comparison of the station announcements used on trains (2001, 2004 and 2015 versions)

There's a large, deep trench between Saint-Lazare and Pont-Cardinet (Transilien J - L) :



The line 2 of the subway runs inside this bridge, Rome station is just on the left :



Saint Lazare, seen from this bridge :




This place is a must see for spotters. It's a former tunnel that was converted into a trench for security reasons after a deadly accident in the 1920's :

Sorry if it's a dumb question or if my memory fails me completely, but didn't IdF have 6 zones for public transport? Every material I can check now has 5 zones instead. When did it change and why?

Not only the Ile de France had 6 zones in the past but it even had 8 zones.
Zones 7 and 8 have merged in Zone 6 in July 2007.
Zone 6 merged with Zone 5 in July 2011.

Approching Gare du Nord

The Z 50000 where I am, is racing with another Z 50000.



The two Z 50000 are catching up a regional train from Picardie.


Note that the train where I was, has won (even against the regional train) !!!

No traffic at Gare de l'Est yesterday, because of the operation of demining bombs from the WWII near Noisy-le-Sec station.

Quote:
8,000 moved to clear Paris bombs
September 05, 2015

EIGHT thousand people have been ordered out of their homes on Sunday in a major exercise to clear three unexploded British second world war bombs to the east of Paris.

Roads will be closed and trains diverted as mine-clearing experts are called in to secure the area around the suburb of Noisy-le-Sec, in the Seine-Saint-Denis.
TGVs or local trains that normally serve the Gare de l'Est will be diverted to the Gare du Nord on Sunday until 18.00, when the operation will either have been completed or will be postponed for a second attempt on September 20.

An exclusion zone will be set up from early on Sunday morning, with 8,000 people required to spend the day away from their homes.

The N3 main road will be closed in both directions around Bondy. Boat transport will be banned on the Canal de l'Ourcq and the towpaths will be inaccessible to pedestrians and cyclists.

There will also be disruption to RATP local buses, metro line 5 and tram line 1.

British forces bombed several industrial targets in German-occupied Paris during the second world war - mostly factories in the poorer city suburbs that were supplying German forces.

They include a Renault plant in Boulogne-Billancourt, which was targeted in 1942, and a marshalling yard at the Porte de la Chapelle in the 18th arrondissement in April 1944 - an attack which killed hundreds of civilians living in the area.
