Plus the fact St Lazare is such a busy transfer/multimodal hub.

No, this train had a technical problem and had to go back.
The train following this one has the red lights but only because it is stopped.
It continued its journey to Montparnasse and the north when the first train has joined the southbound track.

It's to note that like the MP 89, the NS 93 also uses different styles of gangways. Line 1 trains use reinforced panels, while trains on Line 5 use the "Paulstra" style bellows.

Increase of the frequency on line 14 during morning rush hour.
A train every 85 seconds (42 tph) instead of every 95 seconds (38 tph).

Hm, when, Kyiv metro tried to perform 42 tph with 100 m steel-wheeled trains and 5-aspect cab. signals with automatic speed enforcement, they found out that actually executing that timetable is hard, and half the time only 40-41 tph were executed.

The picture show that the 85 seconds frequency is a world premiere. But Lille's and Toulouse's subways have 66 seconds frequency ...

I am guessing this change is due to the MP 05?

Well, it isn't fair to compare headways on line with short trains to headways on lines with loooong ones.
Longer trains means longer occupation of signal blocks, longer time for passing speed restrictions, clearing switches and etc.

VAL system and two cars train for Lille's and Toulouse's subways...
Rolling stock of Line 14 is based on six cars for each train...

Well done line 14!!!!!

Hmmm, well it would appear that dem Français there must've taken to muddling themselves up with their overseas gallic cousins in the wrong era, coz the world's 2nd French city *cough*cough* yielded 90-second headways for trains twice as long serving stations generally spread farther apart .. a semi-century ago.

Please! don't inform me that even French (nationals) have taken to this world-premier crap (angle) hailing right outta Queen Vicky's reign The French are already accomplished enough to be taking to toying with that sorta ploy ..

Aside from la Météor and like most cities' subways, Paris's metros run PAINSTAKINGLY slow Rapide, hein?
