This is a long line which takes around 45 minutes. There is a long steep hill out of Chatillon which the six unit rubber tired trams take in their stride. The line was pretty busy at ten minute intervals. Both stations at Viroflay are underground. There is an easy connection at RD with RER line L to Saint-Lazare. I decided to take this back into town because of the great views across the city approaching La Defense. The Eiffel Tower was plainly visible although there was some atmospheric haze.

Quite a contrast in ages of equipment. The rubber tired trams are quite new while the trains on line L are approaching life expiry. The STIF have already announced plans to replace them within a couple of years. Even so the ride was pretty good.
