Isn't there a mistake in the RER signs in Épinay-sur-Seine? AFAIK it's RER C the line serving that station!

Those two stations are quite small, just the length of a tram set and that's all. At the terminal station the tracks continue so the trams can lay over giving their driver a short break before starting again. There is one of more switches so the trams can arrive on one platform and depart on the other.

I think these Lohr trams are striking in both technology and visual design as well. They have a single rail down the center of the tramway that guides it. The trams actually ride on rubber tires just like on some of the metro stock. Cirrent collection is by overhead wire.

Seen last Monday, Avenue de Tourville.

Because of works in the street, the asphalt was removed, leaving the cobblestones apparent...



...and revealing the tracks of the former tram network ! They are still there, 80 years after the closure.

Needless to say, i shoot a lot of pictures.







Since remnants of this network are scarce, this is really a great discovery imho.

Not that rare actually, a significant part of them are indeed still there under the asphalt. I remember when I was a kid in the 80s when numerous streets and avenues were still cobbled, you could see those old tracks pretty much everywhere in Paris back then.

Anyway, thanks for the pics, it's nice to see them again.

I confess that i didn't remember this...

Age do that.

I didn't know were to put the following pictures

Waterways are part of the parisian transport network ; last tuesday I had a chance to see a ship crossing the lock at La Villette ; this lock allow transit of ships between the Saint Martin canal and the river Seine.













Many scenes in french movies take place there, including Amélie Poulain and Hôtel du Nord, and it's the location of this year's edition of Paris-plage :

Any of those tracks still usable?

I know they were able to reactivate some old tracks in Dallas.

It'd be a real cheap way of expanding the system.

No. There is not enough distance between the two tracks for modern tramway (wide 2,40 or 2,65 m)
The old trams were no more than 2,00 m wide

But it seems such an obvious thing to do that I'm really wondering why it hasn't been done already and I assume there must be a reason somehow.
