Air suspension is a type of vehicle suspension powered by an electric or engine-driven air pump or compressor.
Brissonneau et Lotz was a French locomotive engineering company, engaged in the manufacture of railway locomotives and wagons.
Electric current collectors are used by trolleybuses, trams, electric locomotives or EMUs to carry electrical power from overhead lines or electrical third rails to the electrical equipment of the vehicles.
Direct current (DC) is the unidirectional flow of electric charge.
Dynamic braking is the use of an electric traction motor as a generator when slowing a vehicle such as an electric or diesel-electric locomotive.
An electric multiple unit or EMU is a multiple-unit train consisting of self-propelled carriages, using electricity as the motive power.
The MF 2000 (officially called the MF 01) is a model of steel-wheeled electrical multiple units used on Paris's Metro system.
The MF 77 (abbreviated from the French: Metro Fer appel d'offre 1977) is a steel-wheeled variant of the rolling stock used on the Paris Métro.
The MF 88 is a steel-wheel variant of electric multiple units used on Paris's Métro system.
Paris is the capital and most populous city of France, with an area of and a population of 2,206,488.
The Paris Métro, short for Métropolitain (Métro de Paris), is a rapid transit system in the Paris metropolitan area.
Paris Métro Line 10 is one of 16 metro lines in Paris, France.
Paris Métro Line 12 (opened as Line A in 1910) is one of sixteen metro lines in Paris, France. It links Issy-les-Moulineaux in southern Paris to Front Populaire in the north. With 72 million journeys per year, Line 12 is the eleventh busiest on the Parisian Métropolitan system. It has several important stops, such as Madeleine, the 6th arrondissement of Paris, Porte de Versailles and two national railway stations, Gare Montparnasse and Gare Saint-Lazare. The service runs every day of the week, starting at 05:30; the last departure is at 00:39, or on Fridays and Saturdays, one hour later. The line uses MF 67 series trains, the network's standard since the early 1970s; they make a complete journey in 36 minutes. Line 12 was founded as "Line A" by the Nord-Sud Company, who also built line 13. It was built between 1905 and 1910, to connect the districts of Montparnasse, in the south, and Montmartre, in the north. The first trip, from Porte de Versailles to Notre-Dame-de-Lorette, was on 5 November 1910. The line was the second to be built on the north-south axis of the city, in competition with Line 4 of the Compagnie du chemin de fer métropolitain de Paris (Paris Metropolitan Railway Company," CMP). It was extended bit by bit until 1934 when it reached Mairie d'Issy in the south. Tunnelling to the northern terminus at the Porte de la Chapelle on the perimeter of Paris had been completed in 1916. In 1930, the CMP bought the Nord-Sud company and Line A was integrated into the new, unified network as Line 12. In 1949, the CMP was itself merged into the RATP, Paris's public transport company. They operate the line today and have plans to extend it south as far as the town of Issy, and north to La Plaine Saint-Denis. The line was built using cut-and-cover excavation techniques. Since this method cannot be used under buildings, the route follows the streets above. It remains unchanged today and many original design features, such as the Nord-Sud company's refined ceramic decor, remain in the stations. Some stations are decorated thematically: Assemblée Nationale has murals depicting politicians' silhouettes, and the tiling in Concorde represents an extract from the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen in 1789.
Line 2 is one of the sixteen lines of the Paris Métro rapid transit system in Paris, France.
Line 3 is one of the sixteen lines of the Paris Métro rapid transit system in Paris, France.
Paris Métro Line 3bis is one of the sixteen lines of the Paris Métro (in Paris, France).
Paris Métro Line 5 is one of the 16 metro lines built in Paris, France.
Paris Métro Line 9 is one of 16 lines of the Paris Métro. The line links Pont de Sèvres in Boulogne in the west with Montreuil in the east via the city center of Paris, creating a parabola type shape to its route. It is the third busiest line on the network. Line 9 interchanges with all of the 13 other main Métro lines, except for one (Line 12), not including 3bis and 7bis according to the RATP maps. There is, however, a connection to Line 12 via the underground passageway from Saint-Augustin to Saint-Lazare. This connection is not advertised as it is not normally useful unless one is traveling between the southern portion of the 8th arrondissement and Levallois-Perret.
The RATP Group (French: Groupe RATP), also known as the Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens (English: Autonomous Operator of Parisian Transports), is a state-owned public transport operator and maintainer headquartered in Paris, France.
Stalingrad is a Paris Métro station on the border between the 10th arrondissement and the 19th arrondissement at the intersection of lines 2, 5, and 7, located at the Place de la Bataille-de-Stalingrad, which is named for the Battle of Stalingrad.
A third rail is a method of providing electric power to a railway locomotive or train, through a semi-continuous rigid conductor placed alongside or between the rails of a railway track.
Track brakes are a form of brakes unique to railborne vehicles.
The volt (symbol: V) is the derived unit for electric potential, electric potential difference (voltage), and electromotive force.
The Zébulon was a stainless steel prototype of the MF 67 series of rolling stock used on the Paris Métro.
