A few days ago, someone asked for pics of parisians trams during their construction (sorry, I'm not 100% sure it was here or on the subway thread... ).

These one were taken last year in Aytré, near La Rochelle, in the Alstom factory, where the Citadis are built.

Just a little warning : there is an unique assembly line for all trams no matter for which city they are built. So some of the pics are of parisians trams, but other show trams built for Lyon, Dijon, and Montpellier (outside, several vehicules for Tunis, Dijon, and Rotterdam were ready for shipment).

As you can see, the structure and the panels are painted only in white. The colored parts are not painted anymore but covered with thin colored sheets of plastic, glued :

The trailers for the TGVs are built in the same factory.

Thank you.

Opening
Villejuif - Louis Aragon, the northern terminal with a connection to metro line 7 and numerous bus lines.
The opening was a secret with very few people aware, no, I joke.






A tram waiting.



This is the nicest tram rolling stock in Paris network.



More to come...

Athis Mons, Porte d'Essonne, the southern terminal stop.
Right south of Orly, there isn't a lot of thing here, except a mall.
It will stay the terminal until 2018 and the extension to Juvisy a big RER station.



Aéroport d'Orly









More to come...

Paris tram network in early October 2012: 41.5 km, 70 stations
Paris tram network in November 2013: 82.3 km, 145 stations

The network doubled of size in one year and two new lines will open next year.

Knowing Paris tram lines I fully expect the T7 trams to carry on being that overcrowded!

Does anyone have any pictures of the tunnel section of T6 at the western end? I think this'll be the first tunnel on a Translohr line.

Yes, indeed. This will be the first translohr tunnel and Minato ironically said that will be the only tunnel of its kind.

Anyway, here are photos of underground section from Tram 6 official website. I think that there are out-of-date photos, because TBM breakthrough is completed:















More photos can be found by this link

Alstom delivers its 1,500th Citadis tram for the opening of the new T7 line in the Ile-de-France
18/11/2013

On Saturday November 16th, Alstom delivered its 1,500th Citadis tram on the occasion of the launch by STIF (Ile-de-France Transport Union) and the RATP of the Ile-de-France's tram line 7. The inauguration of the new line was held in the maintenance and the storage depot in Vitry-sur-Seine in the presence of Jean-Paul Huchon, President of STIF, Pierre Mongin, President of the RATP and Jérôme Wallut, Managing Director of Alstom Transport France.

Alstom has supplied a total of 19 32-metre long trams, each able to carry about 200 passengers, equivalent to more than three buses. The trams will operate on the T7 line, 11.2 km long, which links Villejuif (Val de Marne) with Athis-Mons (Essonne) and serves 18 stations. There are plans to extend the line further between Athis-Mons and Juvisy-sur-Orge (2018). STIF ordered the trams in February 2011 as part of a contract covering the supply of 39 Citadis trams for the T7 and T8 lines (Saint-Denis to Epinay and Villetaneuse[1]). The deal covered by the contract includes the potential for up to 70 trams.

Sorry for the slightly specific request, but are any Parisians able to get up to date pictures of the crossing between T8 and T1 at some point? Or T8 construction generally, particularly the depot, but I'm especially interested in where it crosses T1 in Saint-Denis.
