Don't you have noticed something weird in this video?

The video starts at Republique station (Pont de Sèvres direction) on line 9. At the end of the video, juster after having passed through Saint Martin station (the ghost station where the Promoteus promotion is), we are supposed to arrive at Strasbourg Saint Denis station. But if you look at carefully, the train stops at Saint Augustin station (on line 9 too). But those stations are not next to each other.

I didn't... Then again, I was doing 10 things at a time, so I wasn't really paying attention once the train left Saint-Martin

Does that also mean 24/7 service?

Highly unlikely. It just means that only the MP 05 are running during the evening hours because passenger traffic isn't as high and thus not as many trains are needed.

Soon, we will see only the MP 05 operate at other non-peak times also. I would guess that once there are roughly 45 MP 05 trains on the line, that the remaining MP 89CC trains will be moved over to .

If the pace of cascading continues at its current pace (roughly 3 to 4 trains transferred per month), we could reach the 3/4 mark by October, with the cascading process nearly complete by January, 2013. Of course, if the movement of the MP 05 is accelerated further, all of the MP 59 stock on could be retired by December.

Do you know when will the line 1 be fully automated, wich only MP05's, and line 4 with only MP89's?

See my edited post above.

If the movement of the MP 05 is accelerated further, we may see all of the MP 05 in service on by November. The current pace is at roughly 3 to 4 trains per month, which puts the completion of cascading to about January or February of 2013.

The same can be said of , the transfer of MP 89CC stock is dependent on the arrival of the MP 05 stock. The current pace of transfer from to is roughly 3 trains per month. The pace of retirement of the MP 59 stock is 2 trains per month, according to what Minato had mentioned in an earlier post. The current timeframe for to be equipped with all 53 MP 89CC trains is by February, 2013.

For the MF 67/MF 01 cascading on , the pace of turnover is roughly 3 trains per month (3 MF 01 trains brought online per month/2 to 3 MF 67 brought offline per month).

According to Symbioz, many of the MF 67F stock are being retired depending on how the trains' conditions are. Trains that are in better condition are being shuffled to to allow some of the MF 67D stock to be moved to in preparation for the Aubervillers extension.

Once is MP05 only within some months, does somebody know anything will change in the service? Higher speeds or increased interval, only possible with Mp05's?

I believe Minato mentioned that service frequencies will be improved.

85 seconds instead of 105.
With this higher frequencies and the new trains (the MP05 can carry 6% more passangers than the MP89), the capacity of the line 1 will increase by 25%.
