Thanks!
I have read that auto-shunt today is essential for distribute all the trains uniformly on both branches since Les Agnettes and Les Courtilles was opened

Glad you like 'em.
Yeah, Cité has its charm, though they should pump up some extra watts in there.

Nice pics.
I remember that you had posted these picture in an other thread.

I agree that Cite station is dark and empty, it is maybe the last used station is the line 4.

Unfortunely Francois Mitterand station don't look well in picture due at its huge size.
It look very dark in this picture but in reality the station is not.
We also see that it was during the holiday, in average working day and especially during the rush hours Bibliotheque Francois Mitterand is very busy.

Strange that it's not used that much. I would have thought the tourists would have used Cite hugely to reach Notre Damme and other nearby hotspots.

Indeed, I posted some of them here, but not all.

I used a compact camera, which makes good photos during the day or at night using long exposure times (see the one taken near Stalingrad), but otherwise it takes some poor ones in the dark, and since they have too much noise at higher ISO settings I had to go for lower ISO values, which meant that in general stations look much darker than they really are.

Bibliothèque François Mitterrand is great and I like it. In fact the whole line 14 is a nice change from your standard metro line.

Line 4, which I used te most, Réaumur - Sébastopol being like 10 meters from me, is quite dirty and crowded (busies line in fact, right?), but really the service seemed great to me, especially since I come from a city where I have to put up with twice the crowd and trains come at 5-7 min intervals during the rush hour(s). Only good thing is that we have newer and cleaner trains, but I'd give Bucharest metro over Paris metro any day, baby.

I love line 14. It's absolutely amazing looking!

RATP also have pretty swish looking headquarters.

I don't think I went on Line 14 when I was in Paris. I remember using lines 1,4 and 5 a lot. I think 4 is the one that goes through Chateau d'Eau, which was pretty close to where we were staying (Rue de Nancy). However that spot was a little scary to walk through at times, so ended up using the Jacques Bonsargent station instead on line 5. The great thing about Paris is that there are always about 3 different stations within walking distance of where you are.

That's the one, yes.

Also, for cross-city trips you can sometimes take the RER and use it like you'd use the express service on some NY subway lines. Not to mention there's a vast network of buses, albeit somewhat harder to comprehend by tourists than the metro, and an ever expanding tram network.

Speaking of ever expanding networks, check the projects for IDF - 2016. Arc Express is the shit!
