I really wonder what they wait to put the first train on commercial service. Of course some tests are necessary but the first MF01 of the line 5 was delivered over one year ago.
Could well be a training issue for the drivers.

That's a possibility. It could be a reason behind the slow intro of the MF01 to Line 2.

or the extreamly noisy breaks...maybe?
as much as i love the interior of those trains, and the fact that some of them are air conditioned, let alone the monitors showing some films...but the noisy breakes really drive me crazy...especially that i use line 2 almost every day.

You can still see this old station (re)named "Arrêt Formation Gare du Nord" on carto metro :

I also see there's an extension in the works for M5 south of Place d'Italie? Or are those just vague plans?

All plans are tentative until funding has been approved.

EDIT (the wonderfully detailed map of the Metro answered my earlier question)

More MP 89 videos from the debut week.

Denfert Rochereau (MP 89 & MP 59)

It is not curious or rare, the third track of Gare de Lyon (M1) serves to park some MF67.
This third track is not rubber tired and it is connected to the line 5.

Between 28 July 1906 and the 17 December 1906, trains of the line 5 were going to Gare de Lyon to provide an interchange with the line 1 before the northern extention of the line.
So Gare de Lyon used to be a termini of the line 5 but only as a temporary measure.

The original project was to send trains of line M2 on tracks of line M1, so Gare de Lyon was built with 2 platforms and 4 tracks ; the traffic was too heavy on line M1 (too many trains), so it was impossible to do this. After, line M5 used it as Minato explained it just before only few months.

Later, one of the tracks was recovered, that's why the platform "La Défense" is so large.

Thanks Minato , I thought the connection between line 5 and 1 was abandoned.

Is this demonstrated by the yellow dotted line on the map?
