Over 1 million passengers per day are estimated for this ring line.
This is by far the most important transportation project for Paris.

For the 20th anniversary of the line 14, Paris metro would maybe have its outer ring line. (Arc Express or Metropherique)

When the opened I was in the primary school in a little town in Central France.

I remember that before december 2003 (before the opening of Saint Lazare extention) the line 14 was quite empty.
After the opening of Saint Lazare station this line became busy.










And our beautiful newest trains on the

Does the M14 really ease overcrowding on RER A like it was meant to?

The colour photo of the wagon I saw some years ago revealed its mostly pale, dull powder blue livery.
This the Nord Sud trains, nord Sud was one of two private compagnies that operated Paris metro before the second world war.

Practically every station in Zone 1... Only a few stations on LU have no surface buildings.

Hmmm, you quoted me from the following thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...6&postcount=43

The safest history I could've written about the overhead-wire fleet was their being used on Ligne 4

The line 4 ?
As I know only the line A and B (now line 12 and northern line 13) of Nord Sud network used had overhead wire.

If you had other pictures of photo don't hesitate to post these here.

Yeh but few station had this in Paris metro, the stations with surface building were mostly built during the 1930's.
Stations like Plaisance, Miromesnil, Porte des Lilas, Robespiere... are from this decade.

I thought Nord-Sud was a line, not a network.

Nord Sud was a network with two lines A (Porte de Versailles - Porte de la Chapelle now line 12) and B (Saint Lazare - Porte de Clichy/Porte de Saint Ouen, now line 13) they also planned to build a line C (Porte de vanves - Montparnasse).

This last line was not build as the line C, because Nord Sud went bankrupt in 1931 and was fusionned with CMP (the other metro company). So the line A became line 12 and line B beame line 13.
This line C was build by CMP as the line 14.

You might be suprised that a line 14 opened in 1937, this line was between Porte de Vanves at Montparnasse Bienvenue and extended later at Invalides with old section of the line 10.
Where is now this old line 14 ?

In 1965, the projet to create an RER line with a central section between Saint Lazare and Montparnasse was cancelled because too expensive, so they have an other idea : to fusion the line 13 with the line 14 and extending this new line further in the suburbs.
In 1976 with the opening of the Invalides Miromesnil section, the modern line 13 is born.

history is very interesting.
  • February 26, 1911: Line B of the Nord-Sud company was opened from Saint-Lazare to Porte de Saint-Ouen.
  • January 20, 1912: A second branch of Line B was opened between La Fourche and Porte de Clichy.
  • 1930: The Nord-Sud company was bought by the CMP company. Line B became Line 13, and the Nord-Sud's planned future Line C was assigned the number 14.
  • January 21, 1937: The original Line 14 was opened between Bienvenüe and Porte de Vanves.
  • July 27, 1937: Line 14 was extended north from Bienvenüe to Duroc and took over the section between Duroc and Invalides from Line 10 (opened in 1923).
  • June 30, 1952: Line 13 was extended north from Porte de Saint-Ouen to Carrefour Pleyel.
  • June 27, 1973: The line was extended south from Saint-Lazare to Miromesnil.
  • February 18, 1975: The line was extended south from Miromesnil to Champs-Elysées - Clémenceau.
  • May 26, 1976: The line was extended north from Carrefour Pleyel to Saint-Denis - Basilique.
  • November 9, 1976: The line was extended from Champs-Elysées to Invalides. Line 14 was eliminated as a separate line and incorporated into Line 13. The line was extended south from Porte de Vanves to Châtillon - Montrouge.
  • May 9, 1980: The northwestern branch of the line was extended from Porte de Clichy to Asnières - Gennevilliers.
  • May 25, 1998: The northern branch was extended from Basilique de Saint-Denis to Saint-Denis - Université.
  • June 14, 2008: The northwestern branch was extended from Gabriel Péri to Les Courtilles.
