The only good thing about this refurbishment is the tiles on the floor of the platforms. At last!! But why has it to be so dark? The whole station still looks very dark

Construction of the new RER NG stock for the RER D and E.

It seems some kind of fashion to retain bad elements from postwar designs. Looking at the older metro stations of Amsterdam, these pictures look awfully similar. It's clean and neat but far from beautiful.

I think these refurbishments look pretty good. And I like the dark tiles. It's somewhat classy.

I attended the Transit mapping symposium in Paris last week. Took the opportunity to take some RER-photos at Chatelet-Les Halles. And - as the symposium primarily concerned maps and wayfinding - that's also the theme of these photos.

I really have to go back to Paris. Would be great to see it again and get an update with all the changes happening there. Few cities in the developed world have such a pace of infrastructure renewal.

That is definitely a much needed upgrade. Auber was one of the worst stations to me in Paris, and all the improvements made so far are great.

A TV report about Auber in February 1972 (not 1974, contrary to what is written in the video title), just few month after its opening.



The station was viewed as futurist but quite empty with few passengers. 24,000 per day. (compared with 180,000 today).
At the time, the line serving Auber was limited from La Défense to Auber and had only three stations.

The extention to the western suburbs with the Saint-Germain branch only occured in October 1972.
It's not until December 1977 that the line was extended eastwise with the opening of Chatelet-les-Halles and Gare de Lyon and the junction with the Eastern part Nation to Boissy and the opening of Marne la Vallée branch.

It's a shame the dome shaped shops in the main hall didn't last, they are great. It must have been amazing when it opened, it's still a huge space compared to most underground stations

The station as a whole did not age very well and, to be honest, still feels empty when taken outside of rush hours but hey, you can succeed every time.

Le chantier du prolongement du RER E au niveau de la porte Maillot avance: une magnifique Potain MD 365 a été montée (avec ascenseur inclus dans le mat ce qui est rare pour Potain)

The tunnel of the RER E in Central Paris is closed for work during this summer.
Among other works, they are retrofitting the platforms for the new rolling stock.
So the inner suburban services are back to Gare de l'Est, like before July 1999.

While it's not the first time that RER E service are redirected to Gare de l'Est, it's the first time that they are so organised. They have put signages and reserved platforms for the RER E services.

Vincennes
The renovation of the station main entrance building is almost over.

There are still plenty to do in the station, the platforms and the widening of secondary access.

Does it have a different platform height?

The MI2N trains, similar to those of the RER A, have an access height of 1200 mm so the 2 new stations in the dedicated Eole tunnel were built with this platform height. It is however not possible to raise the height in the other stations because they share tracks with other trains and this would pose loading gauge problems, so all RER E stations but those 2 have the "standard high platforms" at 920 mm.
As the issue on the western extension will be the same, and new "RER NG" trains are common with the RER D with a platform height of 920 mm, Magenta and Haussmann-Saint-Lazare will be adapted at 920 mm as well .

It can now be considered as a mistake to have chosen 1200 mm in the first place, but in the 1980s SNCF decided to adapt the only double-deck rolling stock fit for the RER (with many doors for short dwell times) at the time, the MI2N that RATP was designing for the line A.


PS : I think they will just raise the tracks, this is easier than lowering the vast platforms.

They are indeed raising the tracks rather than lowering the height of the platforms.

Whatever happened to the plans to change the signage and nomenclature of the Paris system? RER would become "train", the round bullets would go square, etc. Has it sort of quietly died?
