Does the high-speed walkway at Montparnasse-Bienvenüe work again? We went there when I was in Paris with my school, but it was defect. We've just made a walk on the slow (3km/h) walkway next to it.

It's often defect... I mean, really really often !

I use it only 1 time on 3 when I change in Montparnasse-B.

LOL I remember riding M14 and this French girl waiting to get off was like "!!! Ces portes m'enerve!"

The doors on M14 take about a second to open after a complete stop at the station. That takes forever when you're used to all the other lines' doors opening before the train even stops...

That's true. The other lines of the Paris Metro is like the Double Decker buses of London. You hop off before it makes a complete stop. Line 14 must be too slow for many hurried Parisians. People have their hands on the handles or buttons as soon as the metro approaches the stations. I've never paid attention to Metro Line 1 which although has no barriers also has automatic doors. Does that open until a full stop? And the RER? I think the RER won't open until a full stop even if you are pressing the button.

Anyway they are faster to open than the doors on the Alstom driverless trains on the North East line in Singapore. You have to wait at least 3 seconds there.

Yeah the horn is brilliant. Definitely the coolest "doors closing" sound I've come across.
