Nice shot Minato Ku! Too bad there is not sound with your picture. I love the sound that makes Sprague trains during aceleration.

I hope Paris change its metro trains very fast because the oldest are very unconfortable.

I'm interested to know, what is the tph (trains per hour) on each Paris Metro line, I heard it was quite high.

On rush hour I think it's close to (if not over) 60. That's a rough estimate though as I don't have the numbers for each line.

During peak hours, there is one train entering station (each way of course) every 90 seconds on lines 1 and 14, and every 105 seconds on the other lines. That may be a good start for an answer.

I thought it was much higher, especially on 1 and 14. It's still a far cry from the 3-5 minutes at peak hours we get in Bucharest.

Wacked cool guy! Wish I had his equilibrium at peak hours, when I can't hold on to the bar. Good thing people around me make for decent "airbags".

Hey, how come this vid wasn't posted?!

You've made a little mistake in the youtube link (you shouldn't post the = sign between [youtube] tags).

Here's the video:

That was an amazing video! We need that kind of thing on peak hour transport here as it's SO dull!
