I wonder if it's possible or just a wild dream.

Well, 90 sec a doable on steel-on-steel lines (Kyiv, Moscow and etc.), so there are nothing impossible in 85 sec on rubber-on-concrete.

A train every 85s is the actual frequency of line 14 during rush hour... I think that is a very good frequency

Especially considering the fact, that Paris trains are short, so less time is needed for control.

120 meter long in a couple of years, that's not what I call a short train.

It isn't terribly short, perhaps about average, but when 120m are the longest trains on such a large, busy system (one of the 10 busiest in the world) it seems fairly short. Most trains in Montreal metro is 152m, and trains on NYC subway range from about 150m to 200m.

I'm searching for high quality technical drawings of Paris metro trains, e.g. MP89 and MF01. Does anybody know where I can find a good source?

I don't know where you are, but the UIC/SNCF library in Paris is a fantastic source of technical data. It's open to everyone, but the use of the copiers is a bit expensive.

I'f you're living abroad, of course it's not a very useful advice... then you can search in publications like "Chemins de fer" (published by the AFAC), and the "Revue Générale des Chemins de Fer" (RGCF).

I think I have some drawings of the MP89 but i'm afraid it's not very accurate... I will upload this (if I can find it !).

This is the new standard information interface in the metro (and RATP RER).
Much clearer than the previous version with a view of all the lines.

Hi there.

What about that idea of unifying lines 3B and 7B?

It's in the books somewhere (would be called Line 19 due to GPE). Just won't be done before 2025, perhaps even 2030.

Most of the time, "incident voyageurs" means "suicide attempt".

Train drivers of the parisian metro are trained to face the psychological consequences of such an event. It's a mandatory part of their formation.

And it's a good thing those train drivers have been trained to become totally dissociated, unemphatic, robotlike droids, too.

Seriously, but seeing someone kill him/herself in front of your train will never become something you will get used to, no matter how many trainings or formations the RATP might throw at it. It remains a traumatic experience and requires good care for the person(s) who witnessed the scene, afterwards.

Not on lines 1, I hope? Or is it totally driverless now?

What about someone working at the morgue, then? You do get used to things, bizarre as it might seem. Life can 'harden' you.
