So if a tire blows the steel wheels can keep it running? Why didn't the train stop?

It probably wasn't in service...just passing through

The lights within the cabs were not even turned on.


Yes, the steel wheels keep the rubber tyred trains on the go. That makes tons of sense. I actually found a video somewhere about how the rubber tyred trains are made. Specifically the MP 89 type trains used in Paris, Santiago, Laussane, and I think one other place if I'm correct.

Ha I just noticed the lights were off. I was expecting some "Not in Service" type indicator on the train but I guess lights out is indication enough.

Only the MF 2000 trains have LED headsigns. The MP 2005 trains are supposed to have them as well.

Random question...

Is it possible that line 13 had MF 67s operating on it during January and February? I could swear that I rode on refurbished trains with the electronic displays and old style door openers. But now all I see are MF 77s.
I think maybe I'm just blurring together my recollections from different lines, lol.

You may confuse with the line 3.
The refurbished MF67 trains of the line 3 have electronic displays and old style door openers.

I just realised the impact of those doors on the advertising on the opposite platform. It will be very hard to read.

Do you have the complete schedule ?
I guess the last one will be "Chateau de Vincennes" but why is "Hotel de Ville" processed so early ?

No, the last one is Bastille, due at the big curve.

I was thinking that too. But they could do a semitransparent screen over the gaps between the doors for advertising much like how they wrap buses and trams in advertising but you can still see out from the inside. Haven't seen it implemented but just an idea.


Random Paris question, I am not familiar with European style municipal government, but are all administrative facilities within the fancy old Hotel de Ville building or are the more modern supplementary offices. The reason I am asking is because nearly every major city in the US with a fancy old City Hall has an additional municipal building to house the more expanded services that have developed over the years. I understand the question is not relevant to transit but just thought I would ask.

I don't know at all how it work for inner Paris.
In Montrouge (southern inner suburbs) where I live, the old building is only used for ceremonies, all the offices are in the modern building next

The advertising are still visible with the PSD but I admit that I did not really pay attention to this point.
They could also do like the often do with the line 14 where they put some ads on the screen doors.

OK, I understand now.
This morning, doors were in operation at Hotel de Ville but nothing else between Nation and Champs Elysées.
