Even if there were some MP59 remaining in the line 4, from what I've heard the RATP don't want to run the MP59 in Mairie de Montrouge.

I'll agree with you on that one. Those trains were bitterly hot, even though I traveled during March.

This is something I don't miss about the MP59.
Other good point of the MP89, we fell less in the tunnel between Vavin and Raspail on the MP89 than on the MP59.
Bad point, the emergency braking is stronger on the MP89 and unfortunately drivers seem to use it frequently.

Neat photos.

Would you happen to know why the RATP does not want to utilize any MP 59 with the new extension? I wonder if it is a cost/efficiency issue.

I just realized that the English announcement for the terminating station is kinda reversed for versus

On the English announcement reads as "This train terminates here. Board change please"

However, on the sentences are reveresed, "Board change please. This train terminates here"

The MP 59 on Line 11 is not yet scheduled (officially) for replacement. But much speculation remains on whether the line will remain as a rubber tyred line or be reverted back to steel wheel.

If it remains a rubber-tyred line, it is likely that the "MP NG" that the STIF is proposing for Lines 6 & 14 would replace the MP 59. However, if the RATP & STIF decide to remove the rubber rails upon completion of the upcoming extension, then obviously a new class of steel wheeled stock would be developed (probably in conjunction with the MF 67 replacement on Lines 3b, 10, & 12).

It's an interesting thing;
only 2 metro line in Rome, and they are considerably hotter than any line of Paris Metro.
New Trains in Rome with AC was initializated on the line in 2005...
I usually utilize Paris metro in June and it is considerably (minus hot) better climatized than Rome Metro.

Maybe Rome station is just a very hot station in general.

The announcement would be 'all', not 'board'.
