No, cause you can hide a bomb in a pack of chips, can't you? It won't be really suspicious leaving the garbage in bag and then throw it away?

Cool map!

1). Interestingly, the thick dark green line most closely resembles RER "A" today.

2). In this plan, the area to the west of the Bois de Boulogne has better rail service than it does today, where the closest Métro station is Les Sablons.

3). The two (separate?) lines running rough North-South toward the Île de la Cité resemble the current RER line "B".

4). Another one of these lines (along the Boulevard de Grenelle toward Montparnasse) bears a resemblance to the current Line 6.

5). The dotted line in eastern Paris resembles current line 5, at least in the southern portion.

6). I'm guessing this was an early stage of Paris Métro planning, where Paris was looking at doing the 'London' route, and building a metro network that was integrated with their suburban rail network (at least in theory), before they ultimately decided to build an entirely separated system (the Fulgence Bienvenüe plan), complete with trains that run on the right, as opposed to existing suburban lines, which ran on the left.

Those trains only run on line 7bis.

Autorities are studying eastern extension plan for line 10, we don't have much more information
But we know that future development of the area will make room for the realization of this station.

Duo skyscrapers project is planned to have an entrance leading to the subway station.

See at 0:49.

Press release from Siemens:

http://www.siemens.com/press/en/pres...en.htm&content[]=MO

Siemens to equip Line 4 of the Metro Paris for driverless operation
Munich, 07 January 2016
  • Third automation project in a row for Metro Paris
  • Rail technology reduces travel time and energy consumption
  • Start of passenger service planned for 2020
Siemens received an order from the Paris public transport operator RATP (Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens) to equip the 27 stations of Paris Metro Line 4 with signaling and operations control systems. Fully automatic operation can increase the capacity of this line by up to 20 percent because trains will be able to run at shorter headways.

"Siemens has equipped about 300 route km worldwide with signaling technology for fully automatic operation, making it the market leader in this field. Automatic operation will enable Line 4 to offer a service interval of 85 seconds. At the same time, the automatic control will allow to reduce energy consumption by up to 15 percent," says Jochen Eickholt, CEO of Siemens Mobility. The order volume totals around 70 million euros. Work on the line is scheduled for completion in 2022
