THE ADAPTATION OF THE SNCF PARIS SAINT-LAZARE-SAINT-GERMAIN-EN-LAYE SUBURBAN LINE FOR REGIONAL EXPRESS RAILWAY (RER) WORKING OVER LA FOLIE-SAINT-GERMAIN-EN-LAYE SECTION

L'ADAPTATION AU RESEAU EXPRESS REGIONAL

The authors, who are respectively Ingenieur Principal Hors Classe at the SNCF and Ingenieur at the RATP, explain the circumstances in which the part of the SNCF Paris-St Germain-en-Laye line between Saint Germain and Nanterre, where this line joins the Western brach of the RER (Auber-St Germain), was transferred to the RATP which operates the RER. The electric 3rd rail has been replaced by 1500 catenaries. They describe the various kinds of work that had to be carried out between St Germain and Nanterre on a suburban line carrying very heavy and increasing traffic. They explain the modernization required, the new equipment and buildings at stations, in particular at St Germain where a vast underground station with a car park has been built. In conclusion, they give details of the measures taken to adapt signalling for the requirements of the RER which will eventually run right across the Paris region from West to East (St Germain-Boissy-Saint-Leger).
