The official website of the RATP doesn't give the information but I will try to find the info latter.
In the middle of day, it is usually aprox a train every 4 minutes.

Any new developments on the MP NG? Is it officially being called the MP 14 yet?

The name MP14 is official.
We even know that there will be driverless MP14 with 8 cars for the line 14.

There is a joint studies for three types of train.
Rubber tired driverless train with 8 cars
Rubber tired driverless train with 6 cars
Rubber tired manual train with 5 cars

I think that we can imagine that this is new rolling stock for line 4, 6, 11 and 14 but no much is said about the stock for other line outside the 14.
The PDF is mainly about the new MP14 CA with 8 cars.

Thanks! I have a bad feeling that the RATP will opt to scrap the MP 89CC entirely. That would be very sad.

I think so as well.
52 MP89 being retired prematurely, it is a shame.

It sure is. Again, the MF 88...I can understand, high maintenance costs. But scrapping the MP 89 early does not make any sense, unless...the RATP and STIF deem that it would be too costly to modify them for automation.

This is true, there is only 9 MF88, so even it is a bit sad, it is a very small stock.
It is not comparable with the MP89 CC with 52 trains.

I think that is the track that would have been used to switch Line 10 trains to Line 9. Either that or one of the depots.

That's what I thought.

----------------------
From my earlier post: So we have the MI 84 on the RER A being scrapped early (unclear if some will ever see service on Lines D or R), the MF 88 on M7b possible being scrapped early, probably no mid-life, and the MP 89CC possibly encountering the same fate. This really is a true shame.

And what's even more of a shame is that there is still no official replacement for the MF 67 on M3, 3b, 10, & 12. Not even an official word of the MF 01 going to those lines.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
New exhibition about the lighting of Paris metro and the replacement of the lamps by led under way.





Franklin D. Roosevelt before 1952 and Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1957 when the new design was inaugurated

"Oui dire" style when the colored lighting was still working,
It was abandoned because of the difficulty to maintain.

Will they bring back colored lighting, since it is so much easier to maintain now with LED lighting?

could be the new cars for L14 or Grand paris express?


http://www.alstom.com/transport/fr/a...-2013/urbalis/

I think it is because it is the close to the system that operates in Lille in 2016

Perhaps the GPE. Those trains look more like VAL types

There was more than one type of train shown in that film, including metro trains. That said it appeared to me to be an 'ad' for Alstom and their systems rather than any model in particular.
