Last of 73 Regio 2N Trains Arrives in Paris

Île-de-France Mobilités has announced that the last of 73 Regio 2N trains ordered to equip line N has arrived at Gare Montparnasse in Paris, France.

The Regio 2N units were ordered in 2016, as part of Île-de-France Mobilités’ 10 billion EUR modernisation programme.

This programme has introduced new Francilien trains on lines H, J, K, L and P, RER NG units on the RER lines D and E, and Regio 2N double-decker trains on lines N and R

The first Regio 2N trains were first put into circulation on line N in December 2020 to enhance passenger comfort. Following the latest delivery, line N is now the second line in Paris to be 100% equipped with this model.

The Regio 2N is designed from 95% recyclable materials. Each train has 25 on-board surveillance cameras, as well as crowd sensors to record and share service capacity.

The units offer 20% more seats than the models they are replacing and are fitted with double glazing, armrests, underfloor heating and air conditioning.

In addition, the new trains are equipped with on-board passenger information systems to inform passengers of the name and number of stops, the available connections and live journey times.

The transition to operating Regio 2N trains was accompanied by large-scale works on line N and the modernisation of maintenance sites and garages. The new installations aim to improve the reliability of transport on the line and reduce the number of breakdowns.
