Voiture de Banlieue à 2 Niveaux, VB2N is a type of double-deck passenger car used on French railways on suburban rail in Île-de-France.
The coaches, built from 1974, are the successors of the Chemin de Fer de l'État's 1933 built Voiture État à 2 étages. They are used on suburban lines from Gare Saint-Lazare, Gare du Nord and Gare Montparnasse. They were also used from Gare de l'Est to Tournan until the RER E was built.
From the late 2006-early 2007, VB2Ns will be pushed/pulled by SNCF's new BB 27300 electric locomotive.
