My final set of photos from Paris.

Bastille station platforms on Line 1.




Chateau Vincennes entrance with an RATP bus in the background.




Line 1 train at Chateau Vincennes.




The pretty stunning lights at Nation that were turned on during our last day in Paris (line 1).




Sentier Station (Line 3) with MF67 rolling stock there.




So that's all of my Parisian Metro shots. Thanks everyone for looking. My videos of Paris are still here:

Sightseeing Videos - August 2014

Metro and Trains of Paris - August 2014

Hope you've enjoyed, and I really do hope to return soon to Paris again.

The "stunning" lights in Nation are Ouï-dire style: they're coming back to the Métro because LED technology solved the problem of colours fading over time because of the way fluorescent tubes worked: instead, LEDs are providing the intended colour, instead of using the panels to change the output of the fluorescent tubes.

About 25 stations will be equiped.

What is great with the automation it is how close trains can run of each other, the previous train had not completely left the station that the next was entering inside.
Note that stations are 90m long.

Cheers for the info. I wondered why they were colouring the metro. No complaints from me, it looks really good.

I guess the train will come close to the other train very slowly for the reason you just mentioned.

Nice lighting, is it based on random colour generation, or is it A standard pattern?

Wow. Those look really impressive. It looks like a lot of money is being put into the rail expansions in Paris, and I can't help but be impressed! Hopefully with all these improvements we'll see a greater upswing in public transport use from the suburbs to the city.

Oh don't worry they will be built sooner or later, but indeed I think we can expect some delays regarding the schedule. Anyway, let's wait & see.

If Paris actually will move forward with bids for both expo '25 & Summer Olympics '24, if both get approval by their respective comitees, I think we will see A speed improvement on several builds.
Most probably on line 15/16 & both airportlinks..

There is four standard colors but the pattern seems random.
