Wow, thats the most detailed map of that area I've ever seen. I hope that one day, they will merge the two sub-lines. It does seem that things are slowly heading in that direction, am I correct?

The tunnel on the left is where the northbound plateform is located while the island plateform is for southbound or terminating trains only.
The station has been revamped in the 30' when the line was extended to Issy.
The original station was located under the vault you can see in the background. The original tiles and station name are still surviving in what is now only a tunnel..

If you go back through the threads you will find a link to a document that shows the whole of the Paris metro in the same kind of detail. Think it was around Feb/March that the link was posted.

Thanks for the map link. Now I can see exactly how Lines 4 & 14 will link up with Line 13 at Saint Quen, as well as a few other interesting notes

The latest figures are of 2004
These only show the number of entrance. (By exemple, the London Tube figures show entrance and exit)
Note that it doesn't necessary show the reality of the busiest station as many big stations are mostly used for transfer. (not included in this ranking figure)

In million
  1. Gare du Nord : 36.49
  2. Saint Lazare : 34.53
  3. Montparnasse Bienvenue : 29.46
  4. Gare de Lyon (M1) : 15.78
  5. Gare de l'Est : 15.66
  6. République : 15.14
  7. Gare de Lyon (M14) : 15.13
  8. Bibliothèque François Mitterrand : 13.35
  9. Place d'Italie : 13.35
  10. Bastille : 13.10
  11. Chatelet : 12.84
  12. La Défense : 12.81
  13. Les Halles : 12.63
  14. Franklin D Roosevelt : 12.19
  15. Hotel de Ville : 12.03
  16. Belleville : 10.93
  17. Opéra : 10.47
  18. Barbes Rochechouart : 9.14
  19. Strasbourg Saint Denis : 8.76
  20. Gare d'Austerlitz : 8.73

Wow, I didnt think they would ever propose to extend 14 down that far. I thought only the new tramway line would connect to Orly

Unused track that would connect 7bis and 3bis to create Line 15 via Haxo that runs under Place des Fêtes to the eponymous station. I'd assume it's just geographical naming.

Why do not use the Villejuif - Louis Aragon branch of the line 7 to the extension of line 14?

That would piss off all the people taking Line 7 beyond the fork towards Villejuif-Louis Aragon as they would now have to switch trains if they were already taking just one line e.g. from Opera Garnier area. Or did you mean for the extension of Line 14 to just share the Villejuif-Louis Aragon branch with line 7, NYC style? Until today the Paris Metro lines do not share tracks, that I know of.

Opéra is a bad exemple as the Line 14 serve Pyramide station 500m further.

T7? I have heard of T1, T2 and T3. Where will lie the T4, T5 and T6? Is going any further?

The T4 opened in 2006, few months before the T3.
For more information about the tramway, see this thread.
I will post a message about the new lines.

Among the now 4 very different model looks are (only their signature color scheme is alike but hardly the rest)

1. The dominant general look: MF67 and look-alikes or variants (currently operating in lines 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12); some rubber tires, some steel tires, all with latches to manually open the door




2. The bulgy ones with push-button to open the door, noisy steel tires, and their very distinct look inside the cars which looks nothing like MF67 and variants. (currently operating on Lines 7, 8, 13




3. The Lines 1 & 14 look (and soon will operate on line 4). Some may say the small Line 7bis currently has a somewhat similar look too.
Characteristics: accordeon, automatic doors, very different inside from other 2 general styles





4. The NEW look (already seen in Line 2, will then operate on Lines 5 and 9)

Paris has a shared track part in lines 8 and 9 between Strasbourg Sant Denis and Richelieu Droudot. A shared track would be a good idea, but i was thinking abou separate the branch.

Wrong, the line 8 and 9 don't share tracks between Strasbourg Sant Denis and Richelieu Drouot.
These two lines are completly independant.

In the section betwen Republique and Richelieu Drouot, there are two levels of tracks.
The upper level is the line 8 and the lower is the line 9.
