New cars arriving on several lines in Paris.
Paris metro is more dense that's why you have this number of km> madrid network

Concerning the RER it is the best suburban system in Europe and perhaps in the world crossing Paris.

Frankly madrid network metro is recent that's why you have this feeling of new. But the truth is Paris modernizes its whole network and i don't see where paris will copy madrid
Jeeez, you're quoting a 2 year old post, did you expect a reply or what

It looks like it's April Fools' Day all over again, except for real. But not on the London Tube, please.

Sure, AGV is French because it's Alstom's brand. Do you think it's not. Y chance that China decided not to purchase Alstom trains for their CRH - they bought almost all major world brands except Alstom?

TGV is the worst among HSR trains in terms of energy efficiency.

I thought the CRH5s are Alstom Pendolino?

Also, I was under the impression that China didn't order significant Alstom sets (other than the Metro) mainly because it was political.

Pendolino yes, but it is not pure Alstom...

I'm sorry to be so inaccurate, I meant energy efficiency per passenger.

The Madrid Metro will have a "normal" metro map again, after a few years of using a design one that was all but effective.

The change was made effective by surprise, the refurbished old model has already replaced the old one on the pocket maps availlable in several stations and in the website:

http://www.metromadrid.es/export/sit...nomayo2013.pdf

This is the awful map, official from 2007 until last month: http://www.metromadrid.es/export/sit...ticoingles.pdf

You can also find a cartographic version designed by the "Consorcio de Transportes de Madrid":

http://www.metromadrid.es/export/sit...rtografica.pdf
http://www.metromadrid.es/export/sit...etroSuring.pdf
http://www.metromadrid.es/export/sit...oLigeroesp.pdf

And finally this great unofficial map that integrates all means of local railway transportation in the region (wich is probably more useful for people who already know the network):

They sometimes do crazy things at Sol like temporarily replacing escalators with slides

But it mostly means only more Vodafone advertising...

Let's see what I can come up...

Línea 1 Barclays
Línea 3 McDonalds
Línea 6 EA
Línea 7 Amazon.es
Línea 9 Qatar Airways
Línea 10 Samsung
Línea R Antje (why not?)

...and stations like...

Coca-Cola Ópera (Since Vodafone already has Line 2, then Coca-Cola needs to choose a major station)
Scientology Antón Martín (anything goes if you have the money)
EuroVegas Alcorcón Central (nearest to the SuperCasino proposal, I think.)

Can you come up with any possible naming rights for lines and stations? Rules: one line per industry only.

Fine: that makes:

Línea 1 Barclays
Línea 2 Vodafone
Línea 3 McDonalds
Línea 6 EA
Línea 7 Amazon.es
Línea 8 Emirates
Línea 9 Yahoo!
Línea 10 Samsung
Línea 12 EuroVegas
Línea R Antje
(why not?)

I've not seen photos of Linea 2 trains. Are they doing anything Vodafone-y to them?

Not yet outside, but inside the trains:



The last thing they have done is providing whole mobile coverage (by now, only by Vodafone) along the whole line 2. Before, only some stations and stretches in downtown had this service...

They have modified as well the line 2 icon, combining it with the Vodafone logo, and even on the website, this is the new line 2 icon for anything, including signs and line diagrams.
