This will increase the capacity of the line 1 of more than 25%.
Anyway the real difference will be when all the trains on the line 1 will be driverless MP 05.

Except kids, fans and elders, nobody seem to care.
I think people will care more during and after future labour disruptions. The driverless trains will operate and the driver-dependant trains will stand idle. I expect commuters will appreciate the difference.

- line M11 is about to double its lenght : this is a good opportunity.

This conversion is now sure at 95%.

I was about to ask of this. When I looked at the Carto Metro maps, I see no direct link (tunnel) from Line 11 to any of the other rubber-tyred lines (1, 4, or 14). So I was like, "how on earth did they get rubber trains into Line 11?" The only linking tunnel on the maps is from Line 3.

At least with the MP 89CC from Line 1 to Line 4, the trains are transferred via Line 6 (slip ramps between Line 1 & 6 are located at Nation & Etole, and there is a tunnel from Line 6 to Line 4 near Vavin).

Disagreeing 101% ... who wants to lose the acquired tranquility to wheels a-screeching and French cuisine tossed onto a diner's lap ... pneumatic traction underground pushes the urban factor all the higher

This maybe not possible in certains lines due to the slope. I don't know if they're great slopes in any wheel line in Paris, but if they exist it's a problem.

The river valley throughout Paris proper is flat. The old metro tunnels themselves there are quite slopey but not enough to have been obliging pneumatic traction. Pneumatic traction came about due to (a) the Republic's post-WWII quest for modernisation and (b) to increase acceleration and braking capabilities so as to boost line capacities. Meanwhile, conventional-traction capabilities have been improved remarkably although I'd be astonished were its rumbling vibrations ever satisfactorily eliminated.

Have you tried the TGV lately?

The advantages of pneumatic traction for metros tend to dominate as the size of the metro cars gets smaller. The advantages of steel traction tend to dominate as the size of the metro cars gets larger.

British Classes 43 and 313 hailing from the 70s outstepped any TGV. As per loading-guage capabilities, take a look below (at my outstanding query).

interesting-looking switches/points
At any rate, what Parisian is gonna ride their metros hours on end ... plus the rumbling I was referring to isn't related to passengers' experience either.

That is not so relevant. Toulouse is in a flat river valley and the metro has great slopes to take all the advantages of the wheel traction. Whith big slopes you could have deeper tunnels and shallower stations in the same line.

That's the relevant question.

Somebody! tell me the last time Toulouse traipsed about Paris, pleez ... the infrequently-encountered hilliness and tunnels've been around longer than any rubbery wheel underground there

Franklin D. Roosevelt (I only post a link for this one)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Qx1ALDu42Y

Would anyone know if the Line 9 station will receive a renovation any time soon? Especially since the Line 1 station was completely overhauled.

I haven't heard of any renovation for the line 9 platforms of Franklin D. Roosevelt.
