Watching these videos, I feel very young (I wasn't born in the 80's).

I wish I could have seen an MP 55. Those trains looked so nice in their heyday.

Here is some footage of the new video game Battlefield 3, featuring a fictional Paris Metro station ''Rue Catharine - Park Cresant''.
Have you found any mistakes yet? I noticed that the line colors are incorrect (M7 for example is yellow-ish) and Malesherbes has been misspelled in one sign.

Somebody already mentionned this game in this thread post #2092.
Everything is pretty much fictional.
The line 3 going to Porte de la Villette or the line 7 going to Gare de St-Denis. Siel pannels indicate the name of the station instead of the name of the terminus.
Anyway signage design is well respected.

The metro station look quite good. It would be cool if we had stations with wide space, huge entrances, many escalators in Paris metro like in "Battlefield 3".

I agree. The developers put a lot of detail into the game that reflects the actual Metro, even going down to the green-ish stripes on the trains themselves.

I have received an update, the next line to be filmed will be

Due to the delay of the MP 05, he will not be filming until early 2012, when the stock transition will be well underway.

Oh, how original! with 'prominent' names like that, surely the daftly-entertaining video must hail from Montreal, which is supposedly known as a centre for manufacturing crap like that (the intersection of Ste-Catherine W & Crescent Streets, right downtown, is supposedly the hub of Montreal's most popular nightlife district, being where wannabe men go to pick up chix for lousily-good times)

RATP just launched its new iPhone app which indicates live the waiting times at each bus, RER, metro, tram and night bus stations.

When late there's no reason anymore to run for nothing in subway corridors! And if we hesitate between two itineraries, we just vhave to check next train or bus arrival to know which is the best.

This app will change my life! It is fully free. Just type RATP on the app store search engine.

I don't really like the latest update for several reasons....not to mention it's a bit buggy.

BTW this app used to cost €2,99 (price what I paid if I remember well )...so the RATP must pay me back !!!

OK: You'd let forummers know which lines have been fully recorded on video and thus shared here on SC; my suggestion is that each video be hyperlinked to your Line icons. I'm suggesting you fully document your claim, because a swift search of this thread seems to point out otherwise . Although wonkily done, a partial example of my suggestion follows:
- point A à point B
- point B à point C
- point C à point D
(My examples above are linked directly to the youtube videos themselves as opposed to the SC posts containing the corresponding videos.)

Is this clearer?

Right sir. Thank you for the clarification. I will have to work on that.

About the station, it's much more 90s than 70s style !


If I remember well, here's how the Opéra Station on Ligne looked like in the 70s (the example below being La Muette Station, ..):

Good ones...



BUT, apparently it's a Quebecois stuff.... (nothing to do with the brilliantly cooled metro we have here in France )
