They plan to create a dedicated CDG line (CDG Express) which I think won't be needed with the Grand Paris Project (new metro line 17 will go to CDG)

They are also renovating it.

What kind of Stock is that that they are renovating? (and what kind was shown before?)

Also, I'd say that CDG Express is needed even WITH Metro 17. M17 will be for local service. There is still a need for such a destination as Paris to have an express connection to downtown. Besides, the CDG Express appears to use largely existing ROW, so it shouldn't be too hard. Might as well build it now rather than wait.

The spread of multi-color lighting in Oui-dire stations continues.

At least they've kept the main aspects of the station intact. If they gave that station a whole different look like FDR, honestly, I would have felt sick.

La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle
An other station which is losing its Mouton style (orange, yellow tiles).


I agree that in station like Gare de l'Est, it was pretty ugly but here on the line 8's westbound platform at La Motte-Picquet - Grenelle. It was rather nice.

Little remark from Railway Gazette:

Quote:
http://www.railwaygazette.com/news/u...uary-2015.html

Line 15 South, the first phase of the Grand Paris Express project, has received its Declaration of Public Utility. This was announced a few days after the signing of an agreement with Caisse des Dépôts providing €4bn for the project

When the new MP 14 stock will be delivered.
Not before the extension to Mairie de Saint-Ouen or Carrefour Pleyel.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the horrible tragedy in Paris.

Is the transport network being adversely affected in any way? Any services suspended? I'm sure there's lots of patrols going on in rail stations, etc. right now.

Looks like some Metro stations have had to intermittently close according to what is being said on Symbioz.
