Speaking of closure.
Last weekend, the line 9 was closed between Nation and Mairie de Montreuil.

I don't have any info.

About the pace of the delivery, don't forget that the MF 01 of line 9 begin to run on the line 5 before being transfered on line 9.
If there is only about 32 MF 01 on line 9, there are over 38 MF 01 for line 9 delivered.

The first MF 01, the prototype #001 was refurbished, the livery has changed to the STIF livery.
This train is currently on line 5 but it will run on line 9.

Any reason why train 001 is making that shift?

Well the shift on the livery is because the STIF who is now paying for all trains, buses used by the ratp and sncf, wants its name clearly displayed on everything....

And if the question was about the train running on line 5 is because of the reconstruction of the train workshop on line 9, line 5 is lending some of its mf01 in exchange for the brand new sets

The line 5 sets are already service proven and thus are less likely to have any major malfunctions

Whereas brand new trains may have some issues which require maintenance at a workshop with experienced crews, something line 9 doesn't have at the moment.

I guess I should have been more specific, why is train 001 moving from Line 2 to Line 9? I know the train was used for testing prior to, but why now a permanent move?

Maybe because the line 9 needs more trains than the line 2.

I don't think that main railway station is the proper term to descrive the Saint-Denis Pleyel station on the Grand Paris Express (lines 14, 15, 16, 17).
It will be the station with the highest number of lines of Grand Paris Express project (not including the other lines) but I don't think that it will be a more important than hub like la Défense in term on traffic for Grand Paris Express project lines.

Kengo Kuma unveils the main railway station of the Grand Paris Express

Japanese architect Kengo Kuma has unveiled plans for the ‘Saint-Denis Pleyel railway station’ in Paris – the main hub of the city’s new rapid transit line. the competition-winning scheme forms the first part of the region’s redevelopment, enabling the city to significantly increase its metropolitan scale. the project involves using the station to link the two sides of the city in order to increase connectivity within the district.

Well, those are certainly dramatic images.

That station must be very deep to have such a long staircase.

And here I thought that the Paris Metro was always right beneath the streets.

Not as short as U55 in Berlin or Waterloo & City in London.

The line 3bis is shorter than the Waterloo & City line and the U55.
2.37 km for the W&C, 1.8 km for the U55 and 1.3 km for the line 3bis.

The line 3bis is the former eastern end of the line 3, it was disconnected of the rest of the line 3 when the line 3 was extended to Gallieni in 1971.

Porte de Lilas is located on Belleville hill.
Note that there are lifts going to the platforms of line 3bis. (except Gabetta, every station on line 3bis has lifts)
