Paris, the capital of France (2.2 million inh., 6.7 million n Greater Paris and 10.8 million in Ile-de-France), is one of Europe's largest cities.

U-Bahn, S-Bahn & Tram in Paris

The French capital has much more to offer to urban rail enthusiasts than the world-famous "Métro", which is currently being expanded on a large scale in the outer areas of the Paris conurbation. Known as "RER", frequent cross-city trains run far beyond the city limits, a network complemented by a series of radial suburban lines classified as "Transilien". In addition, there are now 11 tram lines, some of them isolated from each other, including two "Tram-Train" routes operated by SNCF, and two "Translohr" lines, which feature trams on rubber tyres. The transport scene is rounded off by two VAL systems, i.e. driverless small-profile metros that connect the two major airports. In this book, author Christoph Groneck presents every means of urban rail transport, giving an overview of the respective history of each system and the vehicles used. At the end of the book, the reader will find detailed maps in the form of an atlas of the entire metropolitan area of Paris, which is home to some 10 million people.

160 pages, 17x24 cm, approx. 300 colour images, network maps, text Deutsch/English

May 2020 - ISBN 978 3 936573 62 6, EUR 19.50
