Sorry the line 6 and 7bis have the same colors, this is why I made this mistake.
Obviously the line 6 is the most expensive between both.

@Tuileries Thanks for the starting point but I have not been able to locate the book in the UK.

As for MF67, look what I found: http://forum.e-train.fr/viewtopic.ph...669&start=1289

I speak no French, unfortunately, I wonder if you could ask fa57 to find the MP59 version? Thanks.

Saint-Michel, Ticket hall
The counter became orange, it means that it only provide information and no longer sell tickets.

Counters where agents sell tickets are in green and they are a minority in the network.

Paris metro to gain LED lighting from Philips

Quote:
RATP, the company that runs the transport network in Paris, France, has awarded multi-year contracts worth a total of EUR 11 million to install LED lighting across its properties.
The overall project involves the replacement of the 250,000 light points in 302 metro stations and 66 RER stations with LED lighting.

A hundred metro and RER stations will be fitted out each year between 2013 and 2017. Roll-out will commence in mid-April 2013 at Franklin D. Roosevelt metro station (lines 1 and 9). This project is fully funded by RATP.

The tender was divided into six lots, of which five were awarded to a partnership between Philips and French professional lighting company Solutions Techniques d’Eclairage Professionnel (Step). The sixth lot went to Soitec, a French company best known for its work on semiconductor materials.

The switch to LED fixtures will reduce the energy needed to light up the Paris metro and suburban RER stations by more than 50%, while improving the light quality at the same time, said Philips.

"Philips is proud to work with RATP to help achieve the world's first transport network whose stations will be fully fitted with LED lighting," said Benjamin Azoulay, general manager of Philips Lighting France.

RATP says that it aims to reduce its energy consumption and greenhouse-gas emissions by 15% from 2004 until 2020. Obviously, the switch to LED lighting is intended to help meet those objectives. The electricity usage of RATP's stations represents roughly 12% of its total energy consumption.

RATP prepares the automation of the Paris metro line 4

Quote:
RATP confirmed on Tuesday the automation metro project Porte de Clignancourt, Porte d'Orleans (Line 4), the second busiest line of the Paris metro.

After the commissioning of the line 14 of the Paris metro, fully automatic from the outset, and the conversion to driverless metro line 1 (Château de Vincennes - La Défense), RATP leaders are preparing to switch to turn (line 4 Porte de Clignancourt, Porte d'Orleans)! "This line is just as busy as line 1, said Pierre Mongin , CEO of RATP , to justify the automation project. We have absolutely no intention to automate all subway lines. However, the opportunity may arise when you need to replace the entire rolling line. "

The union of transport in Ile-de-France ( STIF ), which finances investments of the Parisian metro is favorable, said Pierre Mongin reminder that "line 4 has aged. Regularity is not great. The docks are crowded. The installation of platform screen doors enhance security. It would be a sensible solution. " The process of social dialogue was initiated to prepare the future conversion of the line conductors 4.

Great news today, now I'm a bit more optimistic about the automatisation of others line in the metro of Paris in the medium and long-term. At the same time what is great for me is that we're working already on that while others no even thing about it.

there were pretty big rumors about it the last few week.
Anytway the project became official.
This does not surprise me, the signaling system of the line 4 has aged.
Nowaday there is not a single day without some trouble with the signaling in the line 4.

The line 4 has the worst performance of the network during rush hours.
The line 1 used to be one of the worst line but with the driverless operation, service has really improved.
The service on line 3 has also greatly improved with new CBTC system replacing the old ATP system.

Performance of Paris metro line during rush hour (January-December 2012).


The indicator of peak hour performance provides the percentage of the actual number of train running in rush hour traffic with the service ordered.

Isn't it that the signaling on Line 4 is heavily outdated?


-----------------------------------------------------

For the MP 89CC, I hear more and more that they will be converted to driverless upon their mid-life refurbishment. I'm guessing that this will turn out to be the case...
