Oh! Merci beaucoup! I'm editing right now!

Pictures that I found in the net taken by CY2N

We clearly see the difference between unrefurbished MF77 and refurbished MF77 stock.

La Défense is served by RER A which is operated by RATP (unlike parts of RER B, the whole of RER C, D and E).

What kind of light do the refurbished have? Something like xenon or what?


By the way, I prefer the old "girouettes" they are more original, traditional and typical of Paris metro than the new ones, common for so many cities of the world.

: Metro
: RER
: Light rail
: Suburbain train network (a network is several lines excepted for the K, U and R)


La Defense







In La Defense it served by only two lines of the L network


Gare du Nord






Intercities trains, TGV, Thalys, Eurostar, TER...

As you can see Gare du Nord is far bigger than La Defense station.

LED light. They don't need to be powerfull as their purpose is not to light the tunnel but just to be seen. Unlike other cities like Moscow or London the tunnels in Paris Métro are entirely lighted.

The lights in London aren't to light the tunnel though, it's pitch black regardless of the lights, the driver just needs to see the signals.

Why is it dangerous, what is there to see?

Tubeman told me a while back, that lights are good for deterring jumpers, it's psychological...

Well, the general rule of the RER as far as I know is that within the city of Paris, RER A are operated by RATP the Southern portion of RER B is also operated by RATP, but everything else is SNCF! My knowledge might be a little out of date or misplaced though!

It be may dangerous in an other way: by coming from the darkness to the light in stations isn't the driver dazzled? It's why in Paris they've added additional sodium and fluorescent lamps in tunnels a few years ago where the track goes overground to the day light.

I'm not sure, you'd have to ask Tubeman, I think the small amount of light coming from the lights is enough to stop drivers from becoming dazzled.

Well maybe.
The safety measure can change depending the system
In Paris metro, due at an accident at Notre Dame de Lorette in 2000, every driver must do at least one manual drive per day.
