And this was the platforms before renovation, which was done in conjunction with the Line 1 automation project. (photo is from Wikipedia)



Line 9 Platforms - Still the old look from the 1950s.

Does this have anything to do with this year's Hertiage Days?



Definitely made recently, as it shows Leige (Line 13) with PSDs.

Yes it was a treasure hunt organised inside the metro network during the heritage day in September 2012.
The Sprague was the treasure, it was parked at Louis Blanc station.

Interesting, so they did indeed have the Sprauge on display. They just can't run the train on the lines like they used to?

No unfortunately the sprague cannot be used to transport people since 2010/2011 (i don't remember which year).

So unless some renovations are done on the sprague or the RATP lift the ban, we won't be able to ride the sprague anymore....

That is what I understand too. The train can't transport passengers anymore. But I guess they were still able to park it and let people come inside.

I tried to view the photos on Symbioz regarding Victor Hugo station, but none of the photos display in my browser. And it is only like that with Symbioz, so I'm guessing it's a problem on their end.

What is now closed, I am guessing was the original platform?

Do you know if the extension of Line 12 is still on schedule or is it delayed like Line 4?

It is the original platforms, it was closed because of the big curve.

I see. Yeah, that curve looks a little too dangerous for boarding. Especially with the longer trains.

Sadly, I am noticing that even some of the MP 89 trains have some degree of scratchitti.
(notice the doors at about 0:14)

Unfortunately, it is hard to find a train without scratchitti.

The MP 59 will certainly be missed.

10 MP 59 trains remain on as of October 18, 2012 (according to Symbioz).

There will be no MP59 at Mairie de Montrouge.

Nope, and I didn't realize the transfer would accelerate this soon, but according to Symbioz, it seems the RATP is transferring an MP 89 each week now, then retiring at least 3 MP 59 per month.

If my calculations hold true, this should be the picture by the end of the year:

10/17/12 - 10 trains remaining
10/24/12 - 8 to 9 trains remaining
10/31/12 - 6 to 8 trains remaining
11/07/12 - 4 to 7 trains remaining
11/14/12 - 3 to 5 trains remaining
11/21/12 - 2 to 4 trains remaining
11/28/12 - 1 to 2 trains remaining

Looks like all remaining MP 59 trains will be off the system by Christmas at this rate.
