Life is inherently dangerous. The money that would be needed to rebuild a station is huge. There are 1000s of other ways that money could be spent which would save far more lives.

In this case, doors and gates.



It looks like Line 14 (the benchmark of modern rail stations in France) has started something. Hence, because of that, they're installing doors and gates all over Line 13 and Line 1. Once both of these are finished, line 4 will be the next to get them.

With that said, I don't know if they can do the same for Line 5 or for any curved platform. I'm guessing it is technically possible..........though I don't know how it will work out. I'm guessing they'll have either have to make curved gates/doors or they can still use straight ones but they have to make them...........I don't know.

Not for all line, the train built before 1978 are not compatible with the train built after.
Three doors per cars instead of four in the older rolling stock.

Infact the first line with platform edge doors is the line 1 of Lille metro wich opened in 1983.
Lille is still the city with the most platform edge doors in Europe with 60 stations and two are transfers.

If we installed platform doors on the line 1, it is because this line will become driverless and the line 13 (only for the central station and three in the periphery) is because of the crowded platforms to increase the speed and the capacity of the line.

There are at the moment no plan for installing platform doors on the line 4.
Today it wouldn't be possible because of the older train, same for the line 5.

The line 5 don't have many curved stations, it is not like the line was dangerous.
There are more curved stations on the line 1 than on the line 5 but every stations of the line 1 have platform doors.
So curve are not a problem.

Definitely true. It will be well beyond 2020 before the MF 67 are all replaced with newer stock. From what I've seen on the French Wiki, the MP 59 on Line 11 isn't slated for retirement until sometime between 2015 and 2022, if...I read it right.

Not surprising, because it will be a long while methinks before the automation project for Line 4 is able to kick off. I'm sure its in the planning books, but like all of the planned expansions, money dictates everything. And with the global economy the way it is, I will not be surprised if this project is sheleved through 2020.

Neat vid Minato. When more MP 89 go to Line 4 later this year, I will be overjoyed LOL.
I also saw your video of the MF67 on Line 3

That side of Line 10 seems to have a lot of island platforms.

It's not the line 9 because it does not stop at Opéra Station. This is line 3.

A short video i menaged to make yesterday:



i was really lucky to spot MF 01 on the line 5 so i decided to go all the way to Gare d'Austerlitz, got off, changed direction, and waited for it to enter the station
totally worth it
the video is not of the best quality, though

Step ladders?

Does anyone know where I can get information on the construction of the trains? I'm curious to know about the step ladders that are locked down inside several of the trains on the Metro? Can't figure out what they're for?? Maybe if someone is riding around, they can look at it to see if it has a website or company name on it?

Thanks! Merci!

It is simply to evacuate the passengers when the train is blocked outside a station

In this video they failed to install the step ladders, so passenger need to do a big jump.
