MK: Again more neat Paris pics here! I want to mention that I have not forgotten about these pictures and I am still looking at this great set from time to time...

Let me ask about the elevated metro line in pic # 1593 and the British phone booth in pic #1598...is there a useable phone inside or is it for show?

Now hopefully I will find some of the past notes I misplaced to catch up on this topic...LI MIKE
 
1593: It is the line 5, near Gare d’Austerlitz.
1598: I noticed the british phone booth only after having taken the picture, so I don't if it work of it is only a decoration.

After a long while more good Paris pictures...

MK: It has been quite some time but I have not forgotten about your Paris photos...

I have not been able to find my earlier notes and I have less time to post on this...

I will ask about pictures #1621-what line has equipment that allows this view?

#1627-What rail line is that? It looks very interesting to me...

Thanks to your pics I am learning some things about Paris and again I thank you...

Good questions, it two new things.
#1621: It is a driverless train running in the line 1. Since November 3, there are ten driverless trains on commercial service in the oldest line of Paris metro.
The train is a MP05, it has the same design than the driverless MP89 of the line 14.
This trains has LCD screens, A/C and have annoncements in four languages (french, english, german and japanese).
#1627: This Pointe du Lac station in the line 8, it opened on October and is the 301th station of the network.

2011 have been of busiest year in term of novelty in the network since a long time.
MP05 on line 1 with driverless operation
MP89 on line 4, recent trains transferred from the line 1
MF01 on line 5
MI09 on RER A (I will post pic later).
