PARIS : The last day of the MS 61

Recommended Posts

Yesterday was the last service of the MS 61 on the RER A. (1967- 2016)

MS 61 were put in service between 1967 and 1980.


For its last day, it did at least three services (two were planned and the third one was bonus).

La Defense - Boissy-Saint-Léger 

Boissy-Saint-Léger - Saint-Germain-en-Laye, 

Saint-Germain-en-Laye - Boissy-Saint-Léger.




It was an incredibly day.


Empty MS 61 at La Défense


Several fans and I didn't take the MS 61 but a train that left before for Boissy to take pictures of the MS 61 arriving at Sucy - Bonneuil


Here I have seen the most incredible thing, at Sucy - Bonneuil the RER A tracks run parallel to SNCF Grande Ceinture tracks (outer belt, mainly used for freight). A SNCF driver decided to race with the MS 61. According what I heard, he did that without any autorisation.   :lol:






We didn't take the MS 61, we headed to Champigny to get other pictures.


We finally took the MS 61 at Champigny 

Cab view on the rear car with a cool RATP officer.




Saint-Germain-en-Laye, a lot of train fans.


MS 61 and MI 09




We headed to Le Vésinet - Le Pecq with the MI 09 to take pictures of the MS 61 arriving.




Rear car, difficult to take new pictures of the cab.


Front car was more crowded with fans (even the people seated)




Goodbye MS 61 !!!  :(



It was a crazy day, during our ride to Saint-Germain on the MS 61 we were with SNCF officers and some decided to whistle the train departure like they do on the SNCF.

Imagine if an Amtrak officer was doing that on the MTA.
