Minato as I can guess the new metro lines for greater Paris will be much bigger in terms of rolling stock in especially of distances between stations, much closer to Russian or Chinese patterns, right?

That's right.
Grand Paris Express project is about 200km long for 72 stations.
Many (including myself) criticized the distance sometimes too big between two stations in the first project.
Fortunately, it evolved in the right direction, even if there are still several things that are not right in my opinion.

Is it allowed to take shots or record video inside the stations/trains?

I think a smiliar question was asked in the bus/tram thread.

Once when I tried to take some pix of T2 at Porte de Versaille, one of the drivers or RATP inspectors, gently told me not to.
Does anybody know anything about this? Are there any legal consequences of doing that?

But anyway, the area is used by millions of travellers daily. It's rather hard to prevent pictures to be taken... especially nowadays with any single cellphone having a camera incorporated in.

Perhaps, begining with the Line 14 MP 05 trains, we may see something like this... (from the bus/tram thread).

With the MP 05 specifically, we may see the exact same livery as the RATP livery on the Line 1 trains, but the STIF stickers may be present on the windows/"black area" of the frame, like the tram rendering above.

Hôtel de Ville

The station is interesting, not just a stop for trains, but how awfully it is maintained!

Wow! Was the MF 01 for Line 9 a STIF purchase as well? If so, I did not know. All I knew was that the MP 05 for Line 14 was a STIF purchase.

In addition, I suspect water mains be another source of leakiness.

However taking into account all Paris metro stations, the stations still behaves in a good way. Let's not forget the entire network which undercross the Seine, different undergound flumes. Moreover some stations were recently renovated.

Agreed, and there are plenty worse looking subway stations in New York.

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

While awaiting to film later this year, 46arthurdu has decided to re-film , but in the southbound direction. His original northbound direction video was not in HD.

Like the other videos, I have added a link to the videos to Post #2493. I will not be embedding these videos at the moment because there are already too many videos on this page. Should this post be shifted to a new page though, I may embed them later.

His schedule has also been revised. He will film during March, then in April/May. will be done later in the year.

With that said, we will have 2 different entire-line videos for .
