L'ile Adam

Is anyone familiar with this lovely village a short distance north of Paris? I was there last Spring. The entire village was bathed in pale pink tulips. I am trying to find a way to return via public transportation.
Thanks,
Joy

I haven't seen this before. I went to the sncf.com website and it said that it was a commuter train.

I went to the RATP site at www.citefutee.com/index.php and clicked on the itinerary section (it's spelled about the same in French).

When I put in L'isle-adam to Paris it looks like the trains go into Gare de Nord in Paris and are marked as being SNCF.

Must be a twilight zone outside the RER but before the SNCF really starts. Hopefully someone else can explain what's going on 'cause I'm curious now.

Boy, was this a puzzle! All I've been able to figure out is that you take the train from the Gare du Nord and get off at the Gare Parmain-l'Isle Adam, follow the exit marked l'Isle Adam. Here's a map of l'Isle Adam from Mappy and one showing where the town is in relation to Paris:
