It was the Paris fleet that I was remarking as having the lower pitch, not higher. However, the brushes --which I never knew about-- might explain how come an older Mexico City fleet sounds like Paris's own ones whereas neither of Montreal's own pair had; thank you for ah-ha! moment Mind you, of all the videos I've listened to the past couple of days, listening to the one you're sharing is the only one where MP59 sounds like MR63; I swear they were decidedly different around that very same period, both before and after MR63's refurbishment

Do you think the MF 01 will fare better in the outdoor depot than the MF 67?

I noticed on the Symbioz forum, that MP 89CC #52 is scheduled for transfer to around May 23, 2012. #22 will then follow around June 6, 2012.

What do you mean by fare better ? Dirt and vandalism ?
I don't believe that the train will be less dirty exteriorly but unlike the MF67, vandalism has been taken into account when designing the MF01.
So, the MF01 will cope better against vandalisms than the MF67.

I meant specifically the weather, since the trains are stored outside. But also vandalism.

Well the Mf01 should fare better than the MF67F they replace because by looking at the body of the cars, they seem more waterproof than MF67F trains before they were refurbished (the windows were rebuilt to prevent water leaks inside).

And about vandalism, it should cope better too since the interior was design with vandalism in mind (seats cannot be tore open with a knife etc...)

What caused the most damage to many MF67 of the line 5 was the flooding of Eglise de Pantin in 1982.

That flooding looks bad. I read on Wikipedia that this is why some Sprague were in service longer than intended.

I'll be taking a trip to Paris on the 26th of June (looking forward to it ). I guess nobody will object if I post a few pictures afterwards?

Also, in London there's this thing called the "tube challenge" which involves visiting all the tube stations in the least amount of time possible, and I was wondering wether there is a similar thing for Paris.

I hope to be taking a trip to Paris again in the next 3 years.

My camera is under repair for the moment, so feel free to post any picture.
This thread is not restricted, everybody can post photo, video, information, news or ask any question about Paris metro.
More there are people who do it, better it is.

The only thing, I asking, is to avoid to post too many photos or videos by post and page.

Some people did it, including the famous Adham Fisher.

Question for you Minato, I know that you frequent the Symbioz forums. I read on there that due to the MF 01 arriving on , that some of the MF 67 are quietly being shuffled around . I also hear that only one unrefurbished MF 67 still runs on .

What have you heard of this (if anything)?

I've got a question too, can you buy day passes for zone 1-3 (I assume that's what those Mobilis passes are for)? I need zone 3 because I plan on going to the Musée de'l air et l'espace in Le Bourget.

Also for the Le Défense with the RER and suburban train.
The triop between la Defense and Saint Lazare terminal with the L transilien network is quite beautiful with a large view of La Defense skyline when the train cross the Seine river.

About the MF67, I saw some old train of the line 5 on line 10, few month ago but I don't know how many unrefurbished MF67 run on line 3.

Well of course you can buy a Day Pass for zone 1-3, it will cost you 8,55€

Prometheus and the phantom subway station
May 17, 2012

We saw subway cars coming back from the past, we saw subway stations transformed into football stadiums, but we never saw anything like a “ghost station” coming back to life to promote a movie. Well, if you’re in Paris until May 25th travel on the Metro line 9 (direction Pont de Sèvres) you will be able to see Saint-Martin station (closed since 1939) hosting an advertising installation for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus.

According to the press release, Paris subway passengers will be able to “live for a few seconds the mysterious atmosphere of the cave in which a team of scientists, parties in the darkest corners of the universe aboard Prometheus spacecraft, will discover the origins of humanity.”
