Oh I see. I kinda figured so, but I just wanted to make sure I was right.

=======

Is this common along ??

According to Symbioz, MP 89CC #24 is next to move to Line 4.

Speaking of Symbioz, they now have a comprehensive page on the Grand Paris Express project

The line 14 is more impressive, it has the two busiest stations of the rubber-tired lines.

True true.

I'm really looking forward to the future of Line 14 (including both extensions, future rolling stock, etc).

Furthermore though, I am wondering where the MP 89CA will go to once the new stock is in place. It is rather easy for me to picture the MP 05 on Line 1, especially if they extend the line either west or east (or both), but the MP 89CA boggles me.

46arthurdu has begun uploading his videos. This perspective is in the westbound direction, starting from Château de Vincennes. So we will have two different video perspectives on , as we do with the videos for . The eastbound direction video was filmed earlier by Busfotodotnl.

As always, I have posted links to the new videos in Post #2493.



I will not be embedding the other parts. Again, the links can be found in Post #2493.

Yes, and it is one of two lines (the other being Line 14) where there is a video of the entire line in both directions.

Note, the video of Line 3 was also in the westbound direction, as well as Lines 6 & 10. Lines 2, 7b were filmed going eastbound. Lines 5 & 13 were filmed going north.

I would suspect that Line 7 will be filmed going south due to the southern branches. Line 4 may be done going north.

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

At about 5:20 into the video, we see the raccord tunnel to Line 6 at Nation (interesting how they keep the tunnel closed with a aluminum door).

Also, no announcement for Gare de Lyon? Very odd.

This dated article has answered my question. It is a 50/50 split between STIF & RATP. Thus, it is possible that this fleet will begin a mixed livery trend on the Metro (alongside the MP 05 trains going to Line 14) that contains both the RATP green and the STIF grey.

http://www.railwayobserver.com/index...or-paris-metro

I would take it that the livery that we will see on both the Line 9 MF 01 and the Line 14 MP 05 will be similar to that of the MI 09 stock on the RER A, with the STIF grey gracing the midsection of the trains on each side (across the windows) and the RATP green in vertical stripes along each exit door. Though it can be anyone's guess at what the livery will actually end up being, this is just a good guess based on what we've seen with the renovated MI 79 on the RER B & the new MI 09 on the RER A.

That announcment hailing from last summer makes one wonder what obligatory ploy must've been brought about for there to have been no upgrade from the 01 --uhm-- namesake

Gotta wonder about that...definitely.

the French Wiki mentions of an MF 11 to replace the MF 67 on Lines 3, 10, and 12, but nothing seems to be official since nothing came about of an "MP 09" for Line 6. Minato also mentioned in an earlier post that there are rumors that the MF 01 could take over for Lines 3, 10, and 12.

Some rumors heard in the RATP say it could be the MF01.
Likely, we will see something of an "MP 13/14/15" for Lines 6 (CC, 5 cars), 11 (CC, 5 cars), and 14 (CA, 8 cars).

On Line 4; with 19 MP 89CC trains now in service (as of 3/22), it is possible that if the RATP continues to switch out 3 trains per month, that by the time station Montrouge opens in December, that there may only be 2 to 3 MP 59 trains left in service. Should the arrival of the MP 05 accelerate on Line 1, it is possible that all of the MP 59 trains could leave Line 4 by November.

According to Symbioz, the next MP 89CC train to be transferred is #25. It should be in operation today (3/22).

Below, we see the list from Symbioz. (French/English)

I visited Saint Ouen garage, almost three years ago in June 2009, I was surprised to see that I didn't post my pics of this visit here.
Weird I was almost sure that I did.
Anyway it is never too late.

Saint Ouen garage










Only the minor repair work for the MP59 is done at Saint Ouen,
the heavy maintenances are done at Fontenay garage at the end of the line 1.





Used brake block

When I visited the garage it was in work for the MP89 arrival on the line 4.

The tunnel entrance of the line 4 is visible.

As HARTride 2012 wrote, Saint Ouen is where is done the heavy maintance work for the MF77.
Guess how the MF77 come here ? By using the track of the line 4.
Steel train can run on rubber tired line.

Impressive photos!

And now we know why the MF 77 often frequents Line 4, so they can get to the garage at St. Quen.

I assume that the refurb work for the MF 77 is occurring here as well?
Any word as to when the Line 8 trains may be redone?
