The station looks like a lot in Paris.

Trains on Line 11 have 4 cars.

And for the station, well it does look outdated but its because they haven't started the renovations.

Thats good to hear. But they will keep the MP 59s on Line 11 until the time comes to replace them. It will be very interesting then to see how things operate on the metro during the next few years.

MP 59, MF 67, MP 73, MF 77, MF 88, MP 89, MF 2000, and MP 05.

What happens to the MP 73 once the MP 59 shuffle is complete on Line 11? If it only has 4 cars, its likely that its going to be scrapped right?

Here's a recent article discussing some of the closed stations in the metro

What's the story behind the unused Gare Du Nord segment?

It was before the terminal station of the line 5.
For the northern extension of this line (opened in 1942), they built a new station.


This disused station is now used to train new drivers.

This is unrelated to this thread, but I thought I'd post it here. It's a monorail train that I drew up for one of my "fantasy" transit systems. The design of this train is strikingly similar to the MF 77 on the Paris Metro.

From 16 to 19 february in the night, they tested the MP89 in the line 4.

Sorry to bring back such an old post, but this is really great news!!
The trains running on line 4 are in a really bad state. In fact it's so bad that i avoid taking this line most of the time. So by 2011, line 4 will inherit the trains of line 1?

And if these lines are fully automatic, can we expect a 24h service?

Hmmmm 24 hour service? Line 1? Thats something for me to think about, although I dont think thats in the near future.

I would definitely agree that many of the MP 59 trains on Line 4 are in pretty bad shape. For the two days I was in Paris, I rode Line 4 most of the time. I certainly can't wait for the MP 89s to begin being transferred to Line 4 next year.
