If there was to be a special logo to mark the end of the MS 61, then I have one.

Chatelet Les Halles is a very busy station. This is why they just cannot close it down like what is happening to Holland Park tube station in London at present.

London tube stations that are much busier than Holland Park have had lengthy closures for major upgrades.

That said they tend to close parts fully while leaving other stuff open - Tottenham Court Road was recently Central Line only, then Northern Line only, for a few months each. Bank Northern Line will be northbound-only for at least 18 months (IIRC) while they build a new southbound platform to enhance station capacity. Embankment closed both the Northern and Bakerloo line at the same time, but that's about it.

So lots of space to play with and keep disruption to a minimum, as they seem to be doing. (see also the massive upgrade of Kings Cross St Pancras in London).

Never my impression tbh. It's been pretty painful there during the process, I've avoided it as much as I could.

Paris suburban fleet to be renewed
01 Apr 2016



FRANCE: Ile-de-France transport authority STIF has asked SNCF and RATP to prepare technical and financial plans, including timescales, for a wholescale renewal of the Paris suburban and RER fleet which could see 700 trainsets replaced or refurbished by 2021 at a cost of €8∙5bn.

At its meeting on March 30, the STIF board agreed to proceed with a line-by-line analysis with a view to replacing or refurbishing the existing fleet of 1 200 trainsets. STIF notes that the average age of rolling stock on the Ile-de-France network is over 20 years, with more than 200 trainsets being over 30 years old, and that most trains are ‘antiquated’ and ‘unwelcoming’, lacking wi-fi and in most cases in-car CCTV

Or the R32 on the NYC subway. Or, well, just about anything by Budd, really.

I don't think so because the moving walkways have already been modernised.
It is not visible externally and those are currently quite dirty because of the work.

Are services running through to that day? And if yes, is it that service every day until then?
