The French capital has much more to offer to urban rail enthusiasts than the world-famous Metro, 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, driverless small-profile metros that connect the two major airports. In this book, Christoph Groneck presents every means of urban rail transport, giving an overview of the respective histories 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.
