Zébulon (band)

Zébulon is a Canadian music group formed in 1993 in Montreal. The band was founded by singer- bassist Marc Déry, guitarist Yves Déry, keyboardist Yves Marchand and drummer Alain Quirion. Marc and Yves are brothers. They have produced songs such as "Job Steady". In 1997, they won group of the year honours at Quebec's Felix Awards.

Zébulon (Paris Métro)

The Zébulon was a stainless steel prototype of the MF 67 series of rolling stock used on the Paris Métro. It was delivered to the RATP in May 1968.

The RATP used the Zébulon, which gained its nickname from the fact that it was stainless steel, primarily for training purposes. It was never utilized for regular passenger service. The design of the Zébulon resembled that of the MF 67 A-series, but the stainless steel design of the train made it very difficult for the RATP to maintain, and was extremely susceptible to vandalism. Both of these reasons eventually led to the train's demise.

The Zébulon was composed of five cars, although there was a sixth car that was unused. The composition consisted of M.10003 + N.11003 + NA.12002 + N.11004 + M.10004. The train was also equipped with twin bogies.

Although the Zébulon spent most of its time (roughly 30 years) at the RATP training centre, it briefly circulated on Lines 3, 7, and 9. In 2010, the train succumbed to heavy vandalism and was deemed to be beyond repair. The RATP scrapped the train in 2011, with the exception of one motor car, M.10004, which is kept at the workshop Choisy. The training centre is now equipped with seven MF 67 E cars from Line 2.
