Javel-André-Citroën opened the September 30, 1913. (97 years ago, so it is old)
It was a part of the line 8 until July 1938 when the route of the line 8 was diverted to Balard.


Javel is the third station after La Motte Picquet Grenelle, just before the Seine river).

Because it was not a heavy renovation.

There are still four MF 67 on the line 2.

About the MF01.
44 out the 46 MF01 for the line 2 are delivered (43 are running).

That is good to hear. So that transition is nearly done

What about Line 5, any update as to when the MF 01 is to begin service?

No, I don't have any news.
The MF01 delivered for the line 5 (five trains) are all in test.

Do these MF01 have a higher average speed? In other words, will travelling on the be faster when the line is fully being operated with MF01?

In fact, in Paris, there is no real need to run fast, but to have better acceleration, because the stations are really close. That's why MF01 have a maximum speed at 70km/h but an accelaration at 0,90 m/s². For MF77, it was 100km/h (but never used, in reality 70 km/h) and 0.81 m/s².

Exactly, that's why braking can be quite sharp in Paris metro.
The MF01 has better acceration and breaking than the MF67.
A metro driver said to me that it was almost like driving a car.

The journey should be shorter but due at a lack of capacity at Nation terminal station (only two tracks), the driver need to slow down a bit and often stop longer in some station.

I liked the videos. I really like when it says Nation at Victor Hugo! Courcelles and Monceau are close, but I'm seeing that Cluny-La Sorbonne on is very very close to Odéon and Maubert Mutualité. Can you make some pics, please?

In many stations we can see the previous or/and following station from the platform.
It is nothing unusual in Paris.

That is not good. Especially for a busy transfer station such as Nation. I assume there are currently no plans for expansion?

Maybe the capacity problem will solve when ALL the MF67 are replaced by new stock with uniformed accelerations.

I know that at Chatelet-Les Halles there ia a ghost station on the M4 line. Is it true? and how looks this station?

No, it is true that the M4 station of Les Halles was rebuilt further away in 1977 to ease the transfer with the new RER station but the old Les Halles station was demolished.
