I like Bastille station also. Very unique.

Would anyone know if Louvre – Rivoli is getting a modernized look, like the FDR Line 1 station?

Very good job!

What kind of software did you use to do that, please?

I agree. It reminds a lot the official one, on a smaller scale and without unnecessary clutter.

112,000 daily passengers estimated for this section

Going by that map, it looks like there will be a terminus loop (similar to Nation on Lines 2 and 6)? This seems odd, since there have not been any terminus loops built on the Paris Metro since the 1930s.

@big-dog
I loved the RATP pocket sized map from the '90s



It was neat and easy to memorize at a glance. It was also very small, about the size of 2 credit cards put together.

I wanted to have a similar efficiency some 20 years later.

@Stravinsky
That's the new official map edited by the STIF (Ile de France region). The RATP still uses its own map. They just cannot agree.

Actually I've sent my map to both administrations about a year ago but received no answer.

No this is not a loop, tunnel will end in dead end.
This long tunnel after the station (almost 2km) will be used for garage and other maintenance facilities.
Obviously, trains will not use the whole size to reverse, only the first hundreds meters.

Note that maps show two possibities.

I have seen something incredible today on a MF01 of the line 9.
The ASVA system (luminous maps and audio announcements) was working properly!!!





While the ASVA system was working rather well on the lines 2, 3, 5* and 13, I don't know well but it malfunctioned on line 9.
*The line 5 has had some bugs but it wasn't as bad as line 9.

Thanks for clearing that up. I assume that the "almost loop" is due to construction reasons.

Châtelet
The two SIEL planels (countdown clocks) don't display the same waiting time.

The closest planel shows that the train is approaching while the other one shows that it is in two minutes.

The first one was right

Pont-Cardinet
Entrance of the station designed by the German artist Tobias Rehberger.
This entrance will be integrated in the ground floor of a new building designed by the Chinese agency MAD founded by Ma Yansong and the Christian Biecher agency.

13 was malfunctioning also for while right? I wonder if they've resolved that line's ASVA since then. Idk about the 4, but it seemed to work okay in various videos.

Also, what's with the tag on the map panel? A station closure?

Good news, the station is not ina very bad state but it has outdated furnitures and signages.
The platforms of line 5 at Oberkampf are also closed

I don't remember of a big malfunctionning on line 13 ASVA but often drivers forget to put the terminal station, because the system doesn't have this information it only gives the stations to La Fourche.

La Petite Ceinture, Paris' Abandoned Railway, Is The Perfect Way To Get Off The Beaten Path

The Huffington Post | by Lisa_Miller
Posted: 04/20/2014 8:00 am EDT Updated: 04/20/2014 8:59 am EDT

Want to take a walk off the beaten Paris path? If so, a stroll along La Petite Ceinture is definitely for you.

A railway that once circled the City of Light, La Petite Ceinture (called "The Little Belt" in English) ran along Boulevards des Maréchaux, but stopped running in 1934.

Since then, the abandoned tracks have morphed into a garden with an unusual amount of biodiversity. The Little Belt now boasts more than 200 species of plants and at least 70 different animal species. It's a little bit of Narnia surrounded by the city.

In 2008, a portion of the tracks between the Porte d'Auteuil and the Gare de Passy-la-Muette was opened to the public. The rest, accessible from nine arrondissements, is currently off limits, though urban explorers have been known to test the boundaries.

Boulogne - Pont de Saint-Cloud
It is the only terminal station of Paris metro without tail-tracks.
