A Paris metro class MF67 train approaching a station. Originally the plan was to convert the entire metro system
quickly to rubber tyre trains, but it was too slow and the rubber tyre trains were too expensive to run, so finally it had to be accepted
that parts of the metro system should be run on rubber tyres and parts on normal trains´ steel wheels on steel tracks. This is a steel on
steel model - as the name says, from the year 1967. It's a train manufactured by Brisonnay et Lotz 1967-1975. They are used in 3 coach sets
on the short line 3bis and in 5 coach sets on lines elsewhere. These trains were refurbished 1995-98. Over 360 coaches of this type are
still in use in 2018, typically on lines 3, 3bis, 10 and 12 as in the case here.
