I think the poster was saying it appears to be just a single platform in the picture, when if you look close enough you can see the 2nd track to the right of the train, so is an illusion of sorts.

It would be difficult to see the other track.

I rode Paris metro a week ago for the first time, and I should say I really liked it. Being from Soviet Union, I am used to heavy-duty train-like metro, and Paris metro felt like a real metro to me I stayed outside of Peripherique, so I had to take line 8 and then line 1 to get to all the famous places. Stuttgart U-bahn, on the contrary, felt more like a tram than metro.

I have the planning for the installation of platform screen doors in the line 13

Miromesnil : July 2010
Saint Lazare Lazare : October 2010
Champs-Elysées : November 2010
Basilique de Saint Denis : Janvier 2011
Saint Denis Porte de Paris : March 2011
Invalides : May 2011
Varenne : June 2011
Saint Francois Xavier : July 2011
Duroc : August 2011
Liège : September 2011
Montparnasse : Décember 2011
Place de Clichy : January 2012

Some doubt about the utility of these doors in Liège and Varenne, the two least busy stations of the line 13.

Bel Air, between Daumesnil & Daumesnil, M6 (1963, jan, 7th)
Rennes, between Sèvres - Babylone & Notre-Dame-des-Champs, M12 (1968, may, 20th reopened with special timetables : closed on sunday and after 8pm ; normal timetables since 2004)
Liège (my station !), between Saint-Lazare & Place de Clichy, M13 (1968, sept, 16th, same special timetables ; normal timetables since 2006)
Cluny, between Maubert - Mutualité & Odéon, M10 (1988, feb, 17th, so 50 years after closing - with a new name : Cluny - La Sorbonne - but in order to avoid connection with RER B)

Some knew a different fate, I'll tell more later !
Thanks

I agree. But I like the rehabbed trains, they look good inside.

Again, I'm not digging the rainbow theme. And that floor is awful as well.

Yeah, I agree. They are still good trains. I just wish they would have selected a better interior design.

Does anyone know a more precise time frame as to when we can start seeing MP 89s in service on the Line 4? I know the range is 2010/2011, but would it be more like late 2010 if anything?

They won't transfer the MP89CC to the 4 until the MP05 enter service on line 1 and for that they need to complete PSD installations on the line. So yeah, late (very late) 2010 is a best bet. I'm not even sure the RATP could pull this off this year.

So it def. looks like early 2011 then. Just curious...thanks.

My brother will not be seeing the MP 05s then. He'll be in Europe in early April (next month) & will spend a day in Paris. But at least he'll have the chance to ride the metro. I went to Paris in March 09 and love the metro!

I see that Liege was being discussed. I liked how the platforms were unaligned, it felt like you were on an express train for a few seconds until you reached the other platform on line 13.

Not a fan of how line 13 didn't start running until about 5:40am (and the first train was packed) - when do the first RERs leave the end of the line? Seemed a tad late for the first train when you need to be somewhere by 6.

A MF77 running in the line
If you don't know this fact, the MF77 are steel-wheel trains and the line 4 is a rubber tired line.



The rubber tired line have steel tracks, for security reason (rubber tired train have steel wheels) but also because during the conversion in the 1950's 1970's rubber and steel train used to run at the time.

This video could seem weird but it is nothing strange, it happen more often than people believe.
The MF77 stock are revised in Saint Ouen at the northern end of the line 4.
