Eurail on Paris RER or Spain Cercanias

Does anyone happen to know if the Eurail Pass is valid on the RER in Paris or the Cercanias (local commuter trains) in Barcelona or Madrid? I think not, but I'll ask anyway. Thx. Tom

The RER is a "no" for sure. I'm pretty sure it is also "no" for the Cercanias. Generally the passes are only valid for inter-city travel.

From what i have read the Eurail is valid on the RER if coming from Charles DeGaulle Airport, but I understand that is the only time.
