Only a minority of Päris metro stations have smell issues, mostly due to the homeless population or groundwater.
_______________________________

Châtelet, the whole station is undergoing renovation work.
Here the moving walkway between the lines 7, 11 and the lines 1, 4, 14.

Though not related to Paris, the subject may bring forth some pondering about the future of the MP 89.

The Santiago Metro has been undergoing a transformation that includes the construction of two new subway lines, a batch of brand new rolling stock (the NS 12) for Line 1, and now...refurbishment of the system's two oldest series of rolling stock, the NS 74 and NS 93, both are based off the Paris MP 73 and MP 89CC respectively.

Both articles are in Spanish, but give a good idea of what's to come for Santiago.

NS 74 - http://www.ferronoticias.net/2014/03...o-de-santiago/
NS 93 - http://www.ferronoticias.net/2014/04...acondicionado/

Refurbished trains wil have longitudinal seating and air conditioning, among other advancements.

And photos of old and new.

An old tradition in the parisian subway : many billboards in the stations are specially dedicated to advertisements for spectacles, plays...



This pic was taken last month.

Thank you for this information.
Unfortunately we don't even know where the MP 89 rolling stock will be in ten years, if it is still in service.

Refurbishment for the MP 89 was initially planned for the 2020's.

Two things that I would like to see in Paris.
Well, we have air conditioning but only in the lines 1, 2, 5, 9 and few trains on line 14.

Porte d'Auteuil (line10).

Because of its strange configuration (the western part of the line was a loop until it was extended to Boulogne in the eighties), the line 10 is a bit confusing for many people :


The sign explain that if you want to go to Austerlitz (in the east) you have to go first... to the west (no choice !), get out at Boulogne and then take another train to the opposite direction :


This plan shows where trains can be parked between peak hours :



Despite its low frequentation, it's an important station : it's close to the Parc des Princes (a stadium used solely for football and rugby, home of the Paris Saint Germain football club), the bois de Boulogne, the Auteuil hippodrome, the very beautiful Auteuil gardens, and Roland Garros Tennis stadium.

Last year, I made a post about Église d'Auteuil (post #3789), the previous station.
It has the lowest number of entry of the network because the station is mainly used for exit.

I don't know the article gives no precise date. In 2014-2015.

Saint-Lazare
To have a seat, many people entered in the trains through the terminal platform.
So the RATP makes clear that this is forbidden.

I hated rush hour at Saint-Lazare more than anything else.

It is so funny to see the fine of exactly 98€ not 100.

I think is is related to the former currency the Franc. In Spain it's not uncommon to see that something is fined with 60.10 € , for example...

Here this doesn't make sense because €98 is not equal to any round price in Franc.

And if you pay right in the moment the fine with 100€ you get 2€ of cash-back?

Does the boarding-on-the-arrival-platform prohibition also exist on the other end of M14 at Olympiades?

It is prohibited everywhere but in Saint-Lazare, you are not sure to get a seat.
This explains why some people enters in the train through the arrival platform.


Olympiades is a much less busy station, you are sure to get a seat.
