Paris-Normandie: New trains and more lines

Passengers on Norman rail lines, including those between Paris-Saint-Lazare and Trouville / Deauville stations, now benefit from the comfort and performance of new trains.

After taking over the management of the Intercités Normandes lines (Paris-Caen-Cherbourg / Trouville-Deauville, Paris-Rouen-Le Havre, Paris-Granville, Paris-Evreux-Serquigny and Caen-Le Mans-Tours) in January 2020, the Region Normandy has worked to ensure that from 2021 additional trains are offered on all lines in the region and to replace aging trains with 40 new trains, offering comfort worthy of TGV, for the Paris-Caen-Cherbourg / Trouville lines -Deauville and Paris-Rouen-Le Havre.

More trains

Since February, the Normandy Region and SNCF have been offering travelers a new enhanced transport offer on all Normandy lines. Additional trains have been put into circulation:

In Week :  
- 4 round trips Paris-Caen-Cherbourg,  
- 1 return trip Paris-Trouville / Deauville  
- 1 return trip Paris-Rouen-Le Havre

New, well-equipped trains

40 new Omneo Premium trains, with comfort close to TGVs, now run on 3 axes: Paris-Rouen-Le Havre, Paris-Caen-Cherbourg and Paris-Deauville / Trouville. These double-decker trainsets were gradually deployed between February and September 2020 to replace the Corail trainsets. 27 other trains have been ordered for 2023 to replace the TER between Paris and Rouen, and Paris-Évreux-Serquigny.

Running at up to 200 km / h, these new, more flexible, more modern, more reliable trains play a major role in improving punctuality on the lines, their reversibility making it possible to start again in the other direction without having to use a locomotive. , and improving the transport conditions for users with trainsets equipped with:
