Opening of the line 12 to Front Populaire, December 10, 2012.
And I'm being honest here. I can't remember using Line 1.

And great news to the Line 12 extension. So it appears it will open before Line 4 to Montrouge.

Saint-Denis Porte de Paris.
I confirm that the station has platform doors, so in the planned stations only Montparnasse is not yet equipped.

Great progress!

Maybe when the entire Line 13 is fitted with PSDs that perhaps automation may become more strongly considered over some of the other lines. Just a thought there.

Very neat rendering! I hope that will be the finished product (or very close to it).

Well why didnt they planed to instal the PSDs in this new station if there is a programm to put them in the system? It would be less annoying if they did it right now.

Platform doors were only planned on lines 1 and 13 and some MP59 could still run on line 4 at the opening of Mairie de Montrouge.
The MP89 and MP59 don't have the doors at the same position.

If I am calculating it correctly, there could be up to 5 to 8 MP 59 still running on Line 4 when Montrouge opens. I still hear that it is not expected that all the MP 05 will be released to Line 1 by December.

I've also heard from the Symbioz forum that there are problems with MP 05 #516, it does not currently run. Minato, do you happen to know about this?

Neat, modern entrance. Now if they would at least refurbish the rest of the station.

Oooh, shiny I just hope they didn't replace one of the old entrances (like the Guimard ones) by this new one. That said, it does look good.

Found this blog post while surfing the web. It features the sights & sounds of the MF 67 at Quai de la Rapée on . The post was created back in November of 2011, a crucial time one can say, as there are now more MF 01 than there are MF 67 on the line.

http://soundlandscapes.wordpress.com...ishing-sounds/

Speaking of which, the rolling stock counts are now as follows:

29 MP 05|27 MP 89CC
23 MP 59|25 MP 89CC
26 MF 67F|28 MF 01

*Note that we have MP 05 #516 in the shop.

======

Is CCTV being installed inside trains on ?

Can anyone explain why?

Interesting (intrusion into the cabin of an MF 77....or any subway train for that matter).

Various scenes


MP 89CC #23 is now running on according to Symbioz.

The next train (as mentioned two pages ago) will be #36, transferring on June 27.

The first July transfer will be #43 on July 18.

The MF 77 passes by four MF 67F trains of in Créteil. All of the trains are sadly tagged. I assume they will be scrapped?

I really like the modern renders and that new entrance at Porte de Vincennes, the Paris metro needs more of those.

Agreed. But again, now only if they would renovate the station itself, it looks like trash - even with the automation improvements.
