The first of what will be many STIF-purchased railcars for the 14 Line of the Paris subway began revenue service in late November. The above is that of railcar #585, and just like the MF 01 of the 9 Line and the MI 09 of the RER Commuter Rail A Line, these railcars are fitted with the exterior grey of the STIF in conjunction with the mint green/white colors of the RATP, the city’s transit operator.
