Magnifique!!!

From the video, it seems that the Arc Express would be using a variant of the trains used by the Dubai Metro.

Firstly it is an aminated video so not a 100% true representation of what will be running. I seriously doubt that any rolling stock has been order yet.

As to what they look like, to me they look like the current batch of trains being delivered to Paris, the MF01. Have a look at the video in post 1459.

Politically I am more in the center right, at the right of the PS but at the left of the UMP.
If I like these districts, it is because they are more busy and I don't like the pacefull district in inner Paris.

Note that the line 4 is rubber tired and the MF67 use steel but as I already said rubber tired lines have average steel track.

I did not know that the MF67 had a service variant model also. Just like the tractor Sprague.

What I'm REALLY waiting for is a video showing an MP89 running through Cite.

I think it is an old MF67 that used to run on the line 2.

Engineering works for the extension of T1 from Saint-Denis RER to Asničres-Gennevilliers-Les Courtilles M13. 4.9 kilometres, 10 new stations. More information about this project here.

Situation at Rue du Port near the Saint-Denis RER. The street looked different a while ago.


Pont d'Ille de Saint-Denis







Avenue de Verdun



The following pictures were taken at the Les Courtilles terminus of M13.

To be honest, I don't know if the term is exact.
It is a ventilation system that uses water and air for cooling.
If i think that you use cold water the let the water evaporate with the hot air and the cool air is brought to commuters. To Be Honest This is just a Hypothesis.
