I was looking at that book in a store here the other day. Wow, I didn't realise I'd spoken to the author before

I was in Paris tram line in december, don't know if it can fit in this thread actually, anyway. I went out from exhibition at Porte de Versailles and took tram to université stop. It was lightly rainy and windy. First, I had to go to metro station to pick-up ticket because I did not notice any selling place on surface, had to make 30 minutes line because only one machine was wroking on 3. Crazy. Then I took tram, new, nice but very packed with people. There was a stop going uphill. Imagine, tram could not start at all, engines were not powerful enough. Tram had to go backwards, and tried to speed up to cross the crossroad when light was really red... We went dangerously through automobile traffic. We lost in the adventure 15 more minutes... I hope they will solve this problem of power, this is very unprofessional...

Have you ever had such problem too?

Hum... interesting, do you remember where it was?

As far as I know all tramway stations are equiped with ticket machines. You might have missed it.

Unusual Metro train running on the left.
February 5, due at a rolling stocks failure the traffic was disrupted on the line 7.
Then we see this strange scene.

I saw this video earlier in the thread and posted it on another site and was told that it may have been doctored because Line 1 only runs at 105 second headways at rush hour, not 90 seconds. Has it been doctored, was it a test, was it to make up for a gap in service? Or does Line 1 run at 90 second headways after all?

I'd imagine the trains bunch up because it is a terminal station and passengers therefore take longer to disembark, giving the impression of shorter headways.

There is a cut at 3:00. So we don't see how much time passed between the 2nd and 3rd train. The 98 s between the 1st and 2nd train as well as the 85 s bet the 3rd and the 4th, however, seem to be real.
That still no proof that the time-tabled headway is shorter than 105 s.

Also the train enters the siding at a reduced speed compared to the speed it would depart a normal through station.

Because the street above is not wide enough to support a normal station ("Liège" station on line 13, under "Rue d'Amsterdam", was built in the same way). As far I know, they are the 2 only stations like that.

In Paris most of stations were built only few meters below the ground level (sometimes less than 1 meter), so they can't be under buildings. The entire station must always stay below the roadway !

Exactly, 2 stations have separate platforms : Liège (M13) & Commerce (M8). But at Liège, the trains stop in the first half station, while at Commerce trains stop in the second half station.

PS: Considering that they had project to extend the line 11 even further in 1929, we are suriously in late.
A big PDF document (in french) about the line 11 extention.
It is really complete with all the informations about the line 11, the extention, the location, the ridership... etc
