Wow, the trains are beautiful but it seems they are not air-conditioned and there is no such thing as a hopper window in the carriages. Seems you need water when you go there if it's very hot or if it's summer, just like the London Underground's deep tube lines.

It can be quite hot in summer but not as much as London underground.

 

As usual. The trains were so nice, and usually these nice trains have air-conditioning. Good thing that the newest Paris Metro trains have air-conditioning.

Trains of Lyon metro were built in the end of the 1970's to the early 1990's.

MPL75 (1978)

MCL80 (1984)

MPL85 (1991)

At this time air conditioning was not view as necessary at this time.

 

If you take the buses, almost all the buses in Lyon have air-conditioning in Lyon; unlike in Paris.

I like the system in Lyon. I must check it out someday. In London air conditioned trains like this S stock train have been in service on sub surface lines since 2010.

Aircon trains cannot run in the deep level tunnels because there is nowhere for the hot air to escape.

 

I am unable to post an image of the train :(

I know the S8 and S7 Stocks - the deep tube tunnels really can't get an air-conditioning system on their trains.
