Hello everyone,

I'm currently making a real-based french route of the Transilien network in Île-de-France ( parisian suburb ) in France. This route will be for T:ANE only ( because of the many built-in objetcs and from 3rd parties websites and procedurial tracks ) and this is the line L Grande-Ceinture ( "Big-Ring", well ceinture means belt in english ) of the Transilien, the line L starts from Gare de Saint-Lazare to Versailles Rive Droite/Cergy-le-Haut/Saint-Nom la Bretèche Forêt de Marly and the independant part which is still the line line but doesn't go to Paris is the Saint Germain en Laye Grande-Ceinture to Noisy le Roi which is the line I'm making:

As you can see in the map above the line is independant but is connected with the Groupe III at Saint-Nom la Bretèche Forêt de Marly by two "voies de service" ( service tracks ). This line is 10 kilometers long, it was openned in 2004 ( it was a formerly used line closed in 1936 for passenger services and in the 90's for the freight services ) ans is served by 2 Z6400 EMU which are the only one with the "Transilien berlingo" livery and interior with gangways ( 3 Z6400 EMU formerly but one burned and was scrapped and replaced by a Z6400 EMU with the normal livery but is only used during the morning and evening peak hour from Monday to Saturday ) . The line is only used by 2000 passengers a day ( the best day I'm talking ) and the ride takes 15 minutes. Finnaly this line will close soon to be renewed into a "tram-train" line ( the line 13 ) and will be extended too, the opening is expected to be in 2020 maybe more knowing how long it takes to do a project here... anyway here's the line concerned:

As you can see it's a short line with 3 stations with 1 that has a connection with the other service and 2 terminus of course. Now the line in T:ANE:

I did my best to be the more acurate but sadly I'm on a Mac and almost nothing is bloody compatible as TransDem.

Here's the Saint-Germain en Laye Grande-Ceinture terminus with real pics to compare:


Now the Val Saint-Léger Viaduc:

Saint-Germain en Laye Bel-Air Fourqueux station:

Mareil Marly station:

Saint-Nom la Bretèche Forêt de Marly:
( this is the service track used only for maintenance and track works )

The sub-station ( with the service track on the left leading to the other line L service to Paris ) before Saint-Nom la Bretèche Forêt de Marly:

The tunnel where the Motorway pass above it:

And finally Noisy le Roi the other terminus:

All the tracks including the switches are done, the overhead line too but some part disappeared for some reason and it's an annoying glitch. The signals are all there too and I've only the scenery to do but it will take some times because it's in an urban area with THANKS GOD half of the line near some forest ( it's easy to put trees than making a street lol ). I forgot to say that the line runs fully under 25KV 50Hz AC. I expect to finish my project for February 2018 I hope but with the incomming test in my University that will be hard, anyway maybe after that I will do a former line in London and after learning Blender why not making my own trains.

That's all for now I will post update frequently and sorry for that long post and yeah for some after reading all this their eyes will be bleeding of bloods because of my broken english but I do my best to learn and correct my mistakes because it's not my language.

Thanks to all and have a nice day !!!

An obscure Suburban branch line you say? :drool:

That's right up my street, I look forward to the finished product.

The line sounds like a Parisian version of the East London Line or the Croxley Green Branch.

Yeah the parisian version of the ex-East London line and when I said 2000 passenger a day it's very rare and low compared to the 1 million of passengers by day in the line RER A ( ok I know it's different lol )
