It looks like those tracks are connected to Massy-Palaiseau (which serves the RER B) and Gare Montparnasse (a major train terminal).

----------------
According to Symbioz, for some reason, the MP 89CC #12 has been refitted with the same type of gangways used on the MF 01. Interesting...

Paris metro don't use white tiles only for aesthetics, it is also because it reflects light pretty well.
Very practical, especially back in the end of the 19th early 20th century when the light were not as powerfull as today.

I don't see why you said that trains are too big, they seem to be on good size for me.
Rome metro carries a lot of people.
331 million passengers in 2008 for only two lines (1200 passengers train make a lot of sens).

is there 2 photos this morning here?

The trains are too big or most stations are not specifically designed for such long train... Whit only one entrance and only one exit in almost every station (and in the center of the station..in the center of every train), in rush hour the train is full in the center (with many people that stay on the doors that cannot be closed) and empty at the head or at the end....
And this is the situation every business day of the week from 7a.m. till 9a.m. o'clock

The 10 busiest metro stations by entry in 2011
Note this is only the entrances coming from outside the RATP railway network.
A transfer between the RER and the metro at Chatelet-Les-Halles is not included in the number of Châtelet while a transfer between the RER and the metro at Bibliothèque François Mitterrand is included in the number of Bibliothèque François Mitterrand.
So don't be surprised if some station have a lower number of entrance than expected.
In reality the number of entry at Châtelet métro station is much higher.
  1. Gare du Nord: 48,146,629
  2. Saint-Lazare: 46,790,941
  3. Gare de Lyon: 34,523,049
  4. Montparnasse-Bienvenue: 31,152,275
  5. Gare de l'Est: 19,671,320
  6. République: 17,095,806
  7. Bibliothèque François Mitterrand: 15,826,727
  8. Châtelet: 14,440,964
  9. La Défense: 13,853,216
  10. Les Halles: 13,113,834

The last one
Eglise d'Auteuil: 178,152

Inside an Mp-89 train (line 1):


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468874/

The gap is tiny. But it is not always the case throughout Métro de Paris.


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468875/

Priority seats for the disabled:


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468876/

Tracks at Bastille station:


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468877/

And now let's try to understand how Paris metro can blend aesthetic and ideological approach and bad maintenance of this beauty. Once again, it is not the case for the whole system.

Hôtel de ville station (City hall!), so, the very center of the city.


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468878/


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468879/


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468880/


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468881/

Many boards have stories related to metro construction and its work. Some misterious ones included.


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468882/

It is being ajusted:


http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468884/

Screen doors harm the overall look of the station:

Closer:

http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/night-c...m/view/468891/

Interesting that not only metro is shown but the history of Paris as well:

Hi Everyone!
I´m from the forum of SSC of Mexico´s City Metro. I'm here to ask the following:

What kind of traction system uses the MF-77 trains?
(for example Jeumont-Heidmann, Chopper [kesar] or VVVF)

Thanks

Virtual MP 05



I find it very interesting that this program (Microsoft Train Simulator) has the MP 59, MF 67, MF 77, MP 89 (both CA & CC), and now the MP 05, BUT does not have the MF 88 or the MF 01. Note that the MP 05 in the program was a modification from the MP 89CA to look like the MP 05.

Note that in the reality, it is impossible.
The MP05 cannot run on the line 7bis.

Gare du Nord
