Since 16 May 2012, the carriage interiors of some trains of the RER C rail line are completely decorated with views of the palace and gardens of Versailles.
In the framework of a partnership concluded between the Palace of Versailles and the SNCF, carriages completely decorated with views of the Palace will start running on the RER C line in 2012 for at least 18 months. The carriages will have views of different places and decorative features of Versailles adapted to their interiors to evoke the diversity and rich atmospheres of the Palace and its collections.
The reproduced views evoke key attractions of the Palace of Versailles, including the Hall of Mirrors, the Battles Gallery, the gardens and the groves, as well as more intimate places such as the bedchamber of the Queen in Trianon, the Cupid’s Temple and the Belvedere in Marie-Antoinette’s Estate, the peristyle of the Grand Trianon, the Library of Louis XVI and the Coronation coach of Charles X.
The first train with the views of Versailles went on the rails in May 2012. Four additional trains will benefit from the same interior decoration by the end of August 2012, enabling regular passengers of the RER C to enjoy a virtual visit and visitors on the way to the Palace to have a foretaste of Versailles.
