On the 19th February 2019, the first completed bodyshells of the first RER NG suburban/regional electric multiple units were presented to SNCF and Île-de-France Mobilités officials at the Alstom and Bombardier factories in Valenciennes and Crespin respectively. The RER NG high capacity EMUs will enter service starting in 2021 on the lines D and E of the Greater Paris commuter railway network.
We thank Alstom and Bertrand Lambert for providing us with pictures. You can visit Bertrand’s blog here.
