I think they want to start driverless operation with the opening of the southern extension.
I believe work for driverless operation will start in 2016 or 2017.
The line has to stay open, a long shutdown period is not possible.

I heard that they will use full size platform doors for line 4 (more intrusion on the tracks on that line).

But the stations won't be air conditioned?

And won't it feel a bit stuffy and narrow with Full Height PSDs?

When I say full height, it means platform doors like on the line 14.

Maybe the air conditioning is in the fact the system lets air from the street, so it is ventilated?

The next metro arrivals are now displayed in some screens at the entrance of the station.
Here in Montparnasse entrance from the train station, they only show arrivals of line 6 and 13.
I think they considered that the lines 4 and 12 are too far (long transfer).

Jaurès
The station is no longer decrepit




How it was before, here.

Hum... no.

Oberkampf
Platforms of line 5, still without tiles and full of graffities.





But the rest of the station is done



Line 9 platforms, they did nothing here because this part had already been renovated.

This kind of picture will soon be history

What's the problem? They are a bit old, that's true, and need replacing at some point in the not-too-distant future. However, from a passenger's viewpoint I don't find them particularly uncomfortable.

Convention
An other kind of screen where next arrivals are displayed

MF 67 with a black face are more and more numerous on line 9, I think that they dominate the line 12 stock now.
Those are the former trains of line 9.

According to RATP's website, Convention was not yet equipped with LED lighting in December 2015 (I took these pictures today but I don't think this has changed).

Ah ok, thank you for the answer!

I think the station is quite nice and in a good shape, only think that it just needs a little upgrade in its lighting and it could be great.

I like them.. they are "typical"...when i think about the métro i have a MFor MP67 in mind.

of course they're far from perfect..and when you have long legs like me, its really un***fortable to be seated on the face to face seats.

The MF 67 was and still is the most widespread stock in Paris metro.
MF 67 stock ran on every steel wheeled lines.

Lines 2, 3, 3bis, 5, 7, 7bis 8, 9, 10, 12 and 13.
Yes, even the lines 7, 8 and 13, served by the MF 77 since the end of the 70's early 80's, have been served by MF 67 in the past.

Where is this?



The "composteurs" are the same, I think, but the signage completely is different.

It is not in Paris.
There is no turnstiles like that in Paris.

I believe that this is in Stockholm.

It is Stockholm. The signs above the escalators in the back says "Ned" (Swedish for down) and "Ej ned" (Swedish for "not down"), these signs are used in Stockholm.
