Idea #125 – Driving a train on suburban line
The Z50000, also called the “Francilien” is a last generation of self-propelled train designed in the 2000s and intended to equip the Île-de-France suburban lines, in France, of the Transilien network departing from Gare du Nord, from the station de l’Est and Saint-Lazare station to replace, in particular, Z6100 “stainless steel” trains (nicknamed “gray p’tits”). The cabin is accessible directly from the passenger room or from the outside by two side doors.
Self-propelled for suburban service, the Z50000 is equipped with equipment allowing the driver to visualize the ascent and descent of travelers and directly control the closing of the doors. For technicians and specialists: to the left of the console, there are the ground-train radio and intercom systems with a touch screen, the door control and the main line and brake line pressure gauges; in the center of the console, in front of the driver, are the beacon speed control unit, the analog speedometer, the signal lamp housings and a touch-screen control and command screen. The only traction / braking manipulator, with automatic standby support, is located immediately in front.
