Odd question. I was looking through Wikipedia about , in preparation to add in information from the French Wiki into the English Wiki, when I noticed that this photo in Wikipedia from 2007 shows the St. Lazare platforms marked as if they were to receive PSDs. But this platform never received PSDs did they? It was only 's platforms.

No, these marks are made to ameliorate the passenger flux.
It has nothing to do with the platform doors.

Ok, got it. Thanks!

Is this perhaps because St. Lazare is so busy?

The line 3 plaforms of Saint Lazare are very busy in rush hours.
Especially in direction of the west, the line 3 serves a lot of employments located in the 17th arrondissement (northwestern part of the CBD) and Levallois Perret.

To show how every second counts, RATP has set up timers on the platform of Saint Lazare.
It clearly indicates to passengers that trains shouldn't stay more than 38 seconds in station in rush hours.

Makes lots of sense, since the station is so congested.

I enjoyed riding the Paris Metro.
It was fast and efficient, and it was not overly noisy (due to the rubber wheels?).

I think the MF 67 (steel-wheel) is the most noisy. The rubber tyred trains are not as much.

TV programme from the 1990s on the Metro. This was filmed when & were still under construction.



The ending of the first part talks about the construction of , particularly the construction underneath the Seine and the sinking of the cassions & station St. Michel. This is continued into the 2nd part of the programme, where there scenes of the same method of construction for near Parc de Bercy.



The 2nd portion of the programme also talks about the MP 59 and gives an inside view of the conductor cabin.

So I'm back from Paris since 11pm yesterday. I had a lovely time, and took the métro and and RER quite a lot. Nearly got sick on a very full MP59 on line 4 because of the intense heat, so I got off at Montparnasse-Bienvenüe and just as I was getting better a nearly empty MP89 rolled into the station, so I took that and then changed to the RER B at Denfert-Ronchereau to get back to the Gare Du Nord again to take my train home.

Pictures soon.

I didn't actually get sick, I just felt that if I didn't get off of the train soon, I probably would have. Those MP59s are like saunas when it's hot outside. It was hot in the other trains too but it felt like the MP59s (and especially on line 4) were the worst.

Anyway, pictures:

I did actually go past both Saint-Martin and Champ De Mars while on the métro, and I was surprised by how easy they are to spot.
