Neat video find Minato. Right when the RER was really gaining steam and the MP 59s were still on Line 1.

BTW; the MP 59 at Bastille, was that a 2 class car? Because the middle car was all white while the rest were blue/white.

Second question, it would seem by the video that the MF 67 scene was within Line 7b. What happened to the MF 67 stock on that line when the MF 88 was introduced?

In 2004, the station had a big renovation work.
The station was closed for several months.

Yes the white car in the middle is first class.
In 1988, Paris still had two class, the first class was abolished in 1991.

These MF67 moved on the line 10 where they replaced the MA51 rolling stock in service between 1951 and 1994.

Liked the videos, like the and ones. The guy who records these must be a metro driver, and I will see all tracks of Paris metro without see Paris... except , I know it's driverless and nobody could make a video of that...

Apart of that, I think is half a line as it stops at Châtelet instead of going further South or West or Southwest... I want the extension to Rosny | Bois-Perrier get built soon!

No he is not a metro driver, you can see the driver cabine from the passenger area inside the train.

What about the blue paint in Saint-Michel? I don't remember the walls being blue, but rather gray with a lot of touch up paint covering up graffiti tags. And this was in 2009.

In 1937.
Porte des Lilas was the terminus of the line 11 for less than two years.

Paris metro in 1988.


This second video of Paris metro in 1988 is maybe even more interesting because we see the MA51.
This rolling stock was withdraw between 1988 and 1994, I never saw this train running.

Wow!

1) Was the MA51 just a prototype train? How many of these trains ran in the system?

2) Why is Mirabeau built like it is? With a split level track? Never have I seen this in any subway system I've been on.

1) Don't confuse the MA51 with the MP51 (the first rubber tired metro train).
The MP51 was a prototype but the MA51 was a normal passenger trains like the MF67.
The MA51 is the first rolling stock delivered after the WW2, it was build for the line 13 (it was a small line then).
I don't know how many were built, more than the MF88.

2) Because there were not enouth place to build an other platform.
Don't forget that Paris is metro was built using cut and cover method.

By the way, the MP51 is also called "la grand-mère" : "grand-mother", because it's the ancestor of all the rubber tired metro trains.
