The installation also began at Montparnasse-Bienvenue.

Which stations on line 13 were already fitter with PSD's? Is there any site with that information? Is Saint Lazare station already fitted with them?

Paris is king when it comes to fitting PSD's in existing stations!

About those PSDs, I understand why they were fitted and from a safety perspective it makes complete sense, but am I the only one who thinks retrofitting them in the older stations sort of kills off the atmosphere a bit?

While it make harder to take picture of Paris, those plaform doors don't kill the atmosphere of Paris metro.

Well only in Europe, because in Asia there are several cities where such work have been done in a much wider scale (Tokyo by exemple).
Anyway unlike in Asia, the half heigh platform doors in Paris are much taller.

I read on internet that the installation at Saint-Denis Porte de Paris is done.
Picture comming on Thursday.

But Paris ligne 1 was the first line in the world to be tranformed (not build from the start like that) in an automatic line, wasn't it?

btw What about the separation of one of the branch of ligne 13, and the construction of a new station in Saint Lazare. I know that's almost impossible to construct a new station in Saint Lazare, but are there any news?

No, it was the U2/3 in Nuremberg.
In Paris metro line 1, work was much heavier and difficult.
The U2 is a more recent line (built between 1984 and 1999) while the line 1 is over a centery old.
The traffic is much heavier on line 1 (it carry two time more passengers than the whole Nuremberg U-bahn network), so the installation of platform doors was necessary unlike in Nurember U2.

I didn't know that. Thank you.

Was that Nuremberg line supposed to be run automatically, when it was build in the 1980's, or was it a totally novelty, like in paris line 1?

I admire your dedication and the quality of the info you're putting in this thread. Specially you Minato and Hartride, it's inspiring to see passionate people...so hats off to you guys, keep up the good work

Having said that, I can't help but feel a certain sadness when I see expansion of PSD...I suppose it makes sense from a technical point of view...but I mean it's really about erecting barriers between people...being a user of the metro myself, i can see how much it narrows the platform and the general perspective...you can't breathe...and it's very difficult to keep an eye on the cute girl on the other side ...
I don't know...sometimes i wish i lived 40 years ago...when things were more simple...

U2 and U3 in Nuremberg have the same tracks in city center and have separated branches in the outskirts, so it's like a >--< network. You can check it HERE.

U2 was built in the traditional way and was opened in 1984.
U3 was planned as driverless and was opened in 2008. In order to make the whole line of U3 driverless, the section which is used together with U2 must have had some development 'cause originally it was not able to run driverless trains.

Thank you. Although I do not live in Paris, I have been very passionate about Parisian transport since I visited Paris in 2009. I love the many aspects of the Metro, especially the MP 89.

That makes 2 of us

Edit: Much like London though, I really like the general look of the stations and I am quite fascinated by the abandoned stations.

Ah, Paris metro! It was so many years ago I was staying in the Ronceray(?) hotel and had to take the metro and a regional train to the IBM training centre. Much must have changed. I must slowly read thru this thread to recollect some memories.

Surprisingly, I don't even remember going on Line 1 during my visit, but I know I did at least once. I mostly remember traveling Line 2 from Clichy to Barbes and Line 6 from Bercy all the way through to Passy. Plus Line 4 from Odeon to Chateau Rouge.

When I stayed in Paris, it was always at the Ibis hotel near Bastille (except for one time at an Ibis in Montmartre and once at a friend of my dad's in St-Maur-Les-Fosses) so I took Line 1 nearly every time
