Okay, question. About what time period during the 90s were the RATP trains (with the exception of the MP 55) repainted to the current teal green/white livery? I've found a few older photos here and there on the net and some of them date back to 1992 or 1993, but trains like the MF 67 and MP 73 were still in blue, but had the current logo. Plus the MF 88 was already green to start when it came into service in 1993.

Unfortunately I cannot help you, I live in Paris only since 2002 and I don't have a clear memory of any trip in Paris before 1996.
As I remember in 1996 I saw a few blue trains still running.

The current green and white livery of Paris metro is not paint but stickers.
Since the mid of the 1980's Paris metro had serious issues with graffiti, so they dicided to use sticker for the livery.

It is easier to remove graffiti with stickers, but they get dirty more easily.

Understandable sir. I was not posing the question directly at you, but I am very curious to know when the transition happened.

And I didn't think it was stickers....out of all things. I thought all the trains had real paint :P

You are lucky to have someone kind enough to give you a link, but next time, use the Thread Finder and search options. Paris LRT/Tram/Bus thread is listed there.

Porte d'Orleans is the current southern terminal station of the line 4. (By 2012, it will be mairie de Montrouge, a step closer to my home).
The station is big as there is many entrances for the different bus lines that terminate here.

A view of the platforms.

Unfortunately big does not mean good.

It will be an average modern station, nothing special expected a lot of purple like the line 4 color.
As I know it will not have PSD's.

I saw some rendering of the station but I didn't found any picture on internet.

Speaking of the line 5, it has two MF01 in test.
We should still wait some month to see them running in passengers service.

According the initial planning the MF01 will be delivered on the line 5 between 2010 and 2012.
Anyway with the delays it could be longer than that.

It seems that many things are slow on the metro as far as improvements go

So I would assume that at this time, there is not much info out there in regards to the proposed MP 09 train that is to replace the MP 59 on Line 11 & the MP 73 on Line 6 (other than it is supposed to look like the MF 2000)
