No it is after, infact this was added when they installated the platform doors.
The blue light and the sound for helping passengers to notice the gap.

Oh I see. I just must not have noticed the guideways for the PSDs.

It's so interesting to me seeing the amount of passengers travelling on the frequent line 14 between Saint-Lazare and Gare de Lyon. I found recent figures of 500.000 passengers daily (source).

Before the opening of the number 14 metro line, which lines did the passengers use? Did line 1 have sufficient capacity at that moment or did it severe heavy overcrowding, even bigger than nowadays?

Many of these passengers are new, the use of the public transportation increased a lot during the last decade as in many place in the world.

Paris metro ridership
1998: 1.155 billion
2010: 1.506 billion

I like the line 14 and it is now a vital link that I use almost everyday but it did not improve the crowding on line 1 and the RER A.
The traffic growth was too strong.

I think that Line 14 will serve Paris in a different manner than it was originally designed for. With the Grand Paris Express in place 30 years from now, I think Line 14 will serve as a reliever for the northern portions of Line 13, as well as serve as an direct subway route to Orly. As far as the RER A, I guess that is anyone's guess.

Not really as the line 14, in early 90's, was planned to go from Port de Genevilliers to Orly.
Infact the current project from Carrefour Pleyel to Orly is shorter.

I heard that it was originally supposed to travel from Genevillers, taking over the Line 13 branch, but was cancelled due to high costs.

I can totally understand what the RATP would have had to do in facilitating that original plan.

*First, Line 13 is a steel-wheel line. Though a new tunnel could have been created up to LaFourche, integrating Line 14 into Line 13 would have required converting the track to accomodate rubber tyred trains.
*Second, the branch would have needed to be converted for automated operation (which may happen someday anyways), like Line 1.
*Third, the stations around Clichy would need to be expanded to accomodate 8 car trains. They can only accomodate 5 car trains at the present time right?
*Not sure how long the newer stations in Genevillers are.........

46arthurdu will be uploading his videos of beginning on Tuesday (4/17). It will be interesting to see which direction he will travel.

UPDATE: He will film in the southbound direction.

You'd think this would be something out of a 1920s silent film...

Great new.
When he has uploaded all the video of the line, I think you (or me) could post it.
Don't only post links, as long we don't have 20 videos per page it is ok to post all the videos of the ride.

I will probably post the next set of videos.

I think it was the Line 1 videos, I did not post all of them because there were already five videos on the page, in addition to a lot of photos. I know I had posted all of Line 13 and 14. Can't remember about Line 8.

=========

Great photos of Line 4 btw. I'm so happy to see more of the MP 89!

According to Symbioz btw, we near the halfway mark with the cascading of stock on both Lines 4 & 5! It is very much possible that the MP 59 could all be phased out of Line 4 by December. As for Line 5, I am guessing the MF 67 will be phased out by mid 2012 (maybe sooner).

Notice at about :40, you can already see scratchiti on the PSD panels. :/

Various scenes and Sprague tour in 1997.

1st Part


2nd Part


Both of these videos were uploaded to Youtube on Friday (4/20). These videos contain very rare footage (like many of the other vintage videos we've seen), as we see the MP 89CC #01 for the first time, which today...she runs on . We also see, in the first video, a glimpse of what looks like the closed St. Martin station on

I don't know the reason, in an other forum some people guess it was because of the Bastille curve.
I also learnt that the NS93 of Santiago de Chile didn't have articulation at first.
It was added later.
We see in both videos, CC #01 was initially without articulation.

By the looks of where the columns end, it appears that this station was extended at one point?

The platform was extended with the construction of the line 13 station in 1973.
Before main entrance of the Miromesnil was on the oposite of the platform.
With the line 13 the main hall of the station moved to this side.

Thanks to the construction of this hall, Miromesnil has easy transfer between both lines.
