MI 2N (Matériel d'Interconnexion à 2 Niveaux in French, literally Double-decker Interconnection Rolling Stock) is a type of electric multiple unit running on the French RER rail network, built by GEC Alstom and ANF (Bombardier France now) for SNCF and RATP.
In Service: 1998 – present.
Even though the SNCF and RATP versions look very similar, they are in fact different, and are designated with different names in each company:
- RATP Altéo / Class Z 1500, operated on the RER A line. 43 trains or 215 cars were built.
- SNCF Class Z 22500, operated on the RER E line. 53 trains or 265 cars were built.
Another difference between the two in the interior is that the MI2N has prerecorded station announcements and an electronic strip map, while the Class Z 22500 does not.
