Paris métro : 105 years of evolution

Hey everyone, I've made a massive work showing the evolution of Paris subway from the beginning to the end. It's a powerpoint document of 132 slides showing each development of Paris subway, from the opening of the line 1 the July 19th of 1900 to the extension of the line 14 to St-Lazare train station the December 16th of 2003. My problem is that such a collection of 132 maps is rather big (34 MBytes), hence, I can't upload it since I'm allowed of only 20MBytes of space online.


However, I've still uploaded a summary version of 22 slides showing the evolution of the métro every 5 years. You can download that version if you're interested, there it is :
The evolution of Paris métro (Powerpoint ; 4 MBytes)


Finally, here's a preview with the evolution of the métro every 20 years...




Paris métro by the end of 1900





Paris métro by the end of 1920






Paris métro in 1939 (before the invasion)






Paris métro by the end of 1960






Paris métro by the end of 1980






Paris métro by the end of 2005

Excellent work... would you be interested in publishing a book?

I have created an historical atlas of London's railways (i.e. all of the lines past, present and future with dates) which is being published in February. When I was in Paris a few weeks ago I thought that perhaps my next project ought to be Paris, but I wouldn't know where to start. Are you an authority on the Paris Metro?

Really great! Would be interesting to see the entire 132-slide presentation. I wonder if it would be possible to upload it somewhere, but the usual host services such as putfile.com don't accept .PPT files (though allowing up to 25 MB per video file).

A 7-km tunnel is likely to be built for line RER E between Saint Lazare station and La Défense main station. (btw next friday a 400m tall tower should be announced and proposed for La Défense).
Line 11 is likely to be extended to Rosny, east of Paris, a 10 km extension.

What's the purpose of such a tunnel. The line A of the RER already joins St-Lazare to La Défense. Well, okay, Auber isn't at the same location than Haussmann-St Lazare, but still.

This being said, it's still a good news a plan has been established to make the RER E goes all through Paris. An RER with one terminus in Paris isn't really an RER.

I'm not sure that's already voted, it's still a project. However, the line 4 will be extended in the South and the line 12 will be extended in the North. That is sure.

And finally, at the North of the line 14 should take the branch of the line 13 going in Asnières-Genevilliers (which will also be extended), and at the South the line 14 should take the branch of the line 7 going to Villejuif. However, they don't yet whether it will go afterwards to L'Hay-les-Roses or to Orly international Airport (That would be the first metro line reaching an airport in Paris).
