30 December 1923.
I don't know if the motifs are original or were added latter.

Another neat article from Metro Pole, about the gangways of the MP 89CC on Lines 1 & 4. There are supposedly 3 types of gangways that are used on the MP 89CC.

According to Symbioz, MP 89CC #13 is now running on Line 4 (as of 2/29/12)

Sprague - 1996



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

While reading through the French Wiki. I stumbled upon a paragraph that mentions that plans to automate Line 4 by 2050 appears to be cancelled (or at least postponed indefinitely) due to high costs. Can anyone verify this?

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ligne_4...A9tro_de_Paris

French
Quote:
Suite à la mise en service de la ligne 14 en 1998, la RATP projetait l'automatisation de la conduite des lignes 1, 4, 6, 7, 9 et 13 à l'horizon 2050. Après la ligne 1, l'automatisation de la ligne 4 fut à l'étude mais, à cause des coûts, l'automatisation est pour le moment abandonnée
English (Google Translate)
Quote:
Following the commissioning of the line 14 in 1998, RATP planned automation of the pipe lines 1, 4, 6, 7, 9 and 13 in 2050. After a line , automation of line 4 was being considered but, because of costs, automation is currently abandoned.

Anyway these pictures don't show the station in its normal shape.
There is a big advert about a country not far of France.

It could have been worse , for example take a look at at what they did in NYC for the same advertising campaign:

Peculiar how all that wrapping reveals a claustrophobia factor to that NYC stock ...

I can definitely imagine an MF 01 traveling through this station.

I know this segment is a double-decker tunnel. Is Line 9 on the lower level? Or Line 8?

The line 9 is on the lower level, that's why it has a low ceiling.
