201bhoy Posted August 28, 2012 Share Posted August 28, 2012 (edited) Just got back from Nice and thought I'd put up a few pics and a bit of info about Nice Ville. There are 7 main platforms as well as a bay platform which serves local services as well as autorail trains. There are extensive sidings on the other side, mostly used for overnight stock, as well as TGVs and local emus. Local services consist of modern double-decker emus and RIB coaches with class 25000s, although the latter are now being phased out. There are regular TGV services to Paris and Lyon, as well as daily services to Lille and Geneva. There are twice daily Corail intercités trains to Bordeaux and Toulouse, and overnight services to Paris, Luxembourg/ Strasbourg and Irun (just inside the Spanish border), and, on Saturdays, Moscow! These services are usually and pulled by 22200 class locos or sometimes by Sybics. There is a daily autorail service to Paris Bercy, but few freight services (I know there are some because caught sight of a class 66 hidden away in a siding). [ATTACH=CONFIG]2393 1. Platforms A-C, with two overnight trains ready to depart 2. and 4. A 26000 "Sybic" class pulls the Nice-Paris Lunea train out of platform A 3.

A Y8000 shunts the stock for the Nice-Moscow train into platform D 7. A class 22200 ready to depart; you can see some autorail cars in the bay platform 8. The Nice-Irun train edges out of Voie C Unfortunately I only really went up to the station in the evenings, so most of the photos are of overnight trains. More photos and videos soon!
