Line 1 terminates @ La defence. Rushhour train frequenty.

50seconds to unload, 40 seconds till the next train arrives. I don't think there are many cities in the world that can do that.

Ah, right. Now having watched the footage, however, the fact that the first train was the busiest of the four tells me that there must've been an interruption in service just beforehand

Not necessary, by exemple at Porte Maillot, there is a interchange with the RER C, this branch of the RER C has only 6tph in rush hours and many people change at Porte Maillot from the RER C to the line 1.
So it is funny to see that depending the arrival of a RER C, the platform of Porte Maillot line 1 are either crowded or empty.

Another rare video of the MA51. This is by far the single longest video of the Metro that I have seen thus far (roughly 25 mins).


Notice the current RATP logo stickers on the trains.

This was filmed 1993, the current logo was introduced in 1992.

And sadly, some of the trains in the video looked really trashed in the interior (graffiti, etc).

I'm sure at that point in time though, the RATP no longer was concerned about the mess inside, as the trains were going to be retired anyways.

This is what I noticed.
Mid 1980's to early 1990's was the worst period for graffiti in Paris metro and in the city on general.
Today graffiti are almost absent in trains, the main problem are the scratchiti.

Agreed. And that leads to eventually having to replace door panels and windows. I'm sure the MP 59 is the worst of all of the subway stock when it comes to this, the MF 67 is probably not far behind.

What shocked me was seeing the doors of the refurb MI 79 already scratched up. I'm sure there are some MP 89 and newer stock here and there that have fallen victim as well.

On another note, I read an article yesterday that said the BOA fell victim to heavy vandalism in the early 90s.

===============

AND: On yet another side note, what is going on with Strasbourg-St. Denis station on Line 4? I noticed the stations panel (in the photo above) has it in "blue". Is there construction going on?

I took this picture in April 2011 and platforms of the line 4 were closed during this time (February 2011 - May 2011) for renovation.
They also closed the platform of the line 9 (October 2010 - January 2011) before and the line 8 latter (June 2011 - August 2011).

Note that the blue stiker is outdated on this picture because it shows the closure of the line 9 platforms.
On April 2011, the platforms of the line 9 at Starsbourg Saint Denis were open.

Renovation works of Strasbourg - Saint-Denis station will be completed by the end of January 2012.

I always seen an interchange between both lines at Porte Maillot.
It is true that you need to exit the fare area to change between both line but it is like the interchange at Saint Michel between the RER C and the line 4.
It doesn't matter when you have a smart card and ticketing system is aware of this fact, so you don't need to change of ticket even if you exit the fare area.

The corridor linking the line 1 to the RER C is connected with the convention centre (Palais des congrès de Paris).






By 2020 the RER E will serve Porte Maillot.

Neat video indeed.
