Wikipedia says most of the stations are 90m long. Does that mean most can handle trains with a maximum of 8 carriages?

Most of the stations are 75m long. Some station lenght had been extended to 90m on the main lines (line 1,3,7,8,9) and some to 105m. Line 14 has 120m long station. But, there are still much more 75m long station than 90m ones.

Well next time I think you should better hide the face of the people (who knows if someday, they may not come across this picture and sue you) and try to take a picture from the front of the platform and not behind people...(just an advice)

Does the metro suffer much from over crowding due to many of the trains being only 5 or 6 cars?

Not so much, it could be worse.
Paris metro is frequent and there are often several lines that are parallel in Central Paris.
It is more complicated for place outside central Paris like La Défense or Saint Denis. Here crowding is more worse.

Well it's definitely preferable to have a greater number of lower capacity routes than to have fewer very high capacity routes, since having more routes means people don't have to travel as far to get to a rapid transit connection. So in that respect, Paris seems to have taken the right approach!

I agree. This business of uploaders feeling free at sharing their recordings of strangers has been out of control too long now. Lately, I've been noticing quite a variety of videographers' awkwardly-filmed output, trying to avoid recording other passengers' faces

Line 14 northern extension goes to the next stage

http://www.leparisien.fr/paris-75/pa...12-1969590.php

(below is the article translated into English)

Quote:
A new step has been taken towards the realization of the extension of line 14 of the metro in Paris. The project, which aims to desaturate the overloaded line 13, has indeed passed the test of public inquiry. The Syndicat des transports d'Ile-de- France (Stif) announced yesterday the positive opinion from the public inquiry in this matter.


January 16 to February 17, the survey focused on the extension of the line between its current terminus, the Gare Saint-Lazare station and town hall-of-Saint-Ouen, Seine-Saint-Denis, to the door Clichy. In question, the effectiveness of this project. Namely: the extension of line 14 will she truly be desaturate line 13? The answer is yes, according to the report of the inquiry.

"This extension will put the line 14 corresponding to the two branches of line 13, at Porte de Clichy (Asnières-Gennevilliers branch) as station Mairie de Saint-Ouen (Saint-Denis branch -University), "argues the commission, which estimates that a quarter of travelers postponing the 13 on 14. A challenge: with 610,000 passengers per day, the 13 is the most overloaded line in Paris, linking incidents and repeated delays, with transport conditions regularly denounced by politicians and user associations. These, like the user committee of the line 13 Asnières-Gennevilliers fear that the extension of the 14 remains insufficient. They prefer him a split line 13 to prevent asphyxiation.

"The opinion of the committee supports, without reservation," says Stif, which used to sequence the procedure for declaration of public utility project and setting compatibility of local development plans of cities concerned: Paris , Clichy-la-Garenne (92) and Saint-Ouen (93), and the land use plan of Saint-Denis (93).

But users will still have to be patient. If the preliminary design studies are scheduled for the end of the work, themselves, will not begin until late 2013. A particularly long and difficult project because the journey of 5.8 km will be entirely underground. Commissioning is scheduled by 2017. If all goes well.
The detailed design is available on www.desaturerlaligne13.com.

Crowded...

According to Symbioz, MP 89CC #37 was moved to this week. Should be in service today or Saturday.

This is after a couple weeks break in transferring trains. Don't know why there was this long of a delay...


The Symbioz Forum also has a thread with photos of retired MP 59, MF 67, and MI 79 trainsets at Toul.

I need to stop reading this thread The more I read it, the more I want to take the next Thalys to Paris. I'll probably do so in June anyway though.
