Especially when even solely Opera, Auber, Haussmann Saint Lazare and Saint Lazare are already big subway station.

Yeah sure, this is bigger than Chatelet Les Halles, but the big difference between the two stations is that no one walks from St Augustin to Opera, there is no use. For instance, if you are on line 9 at St Augustin and you want to grab line 8, 7 or 3 (lines Opera station have), you are better off staying on the train until Havre Caumartin, Chaussée D'antin, or Richelieu Drouot stations (which are the three next stations) and have a short transfert with these lines. Whereas in Chatelet, huge crowds transfert between the RER lines, the Forum and the metro lines because there isn't other alternatives. Also, in the Opera/ St lazare district, a lot of people walk on the street level because most stores are on the street level, whereas in Chatelet access the Forum Shopping center directly from the underground.
That's why, to me, Chatelet les Halles remains the biggest transport interchange in Paris.

@ HARTride 2012: But, yeah, it would be fun to know how much time it takes to go from St Augustin and Opera. I would say maybe 15/20 mins... dunno

That's a unique looking station. Not the most aesthetically pleasing, but unique in my view :P

I think I'll use this a model for some of my fantasy subway stations.

The other stations built in the end of the 1970's early 80's have the same design.

Today is the 100th aniversary of the line 13 !!
The oldest sectionof the line opened the February 26, 1911 between Saint Lazare and Porte de Saint Ouen.
It was the second line of the Nord Sud network (line B).

Guy Moquet opened 100 years ago


A refurbished train arriving in Invalides


The story of this line is quite particular.
  • February 26, 1911: Line B of the Nord-Sud company was opened from Saint-Lazare to Porte de Saint-Ouen.
  • January 20, 1912: A second branch of Line B was opened between La Fourche and Porte de Clichy.
  • 1930: The Nord-Sud company was bought by the CMP company. Line B became Line 13, and the Nord-Sud's planned future Line C was assigned the number 14.
  • January 21, 1937: The original Line 14 was opened between Bienvenüe and Porte de Vanves.
  • July 27, 1937: Line 14 was extended north from Bienvenüe to Duroc and took over the section between Duroc and Invalides from Line 10.
  • June 30, 1952: Line 13 was extended north from Porte de Saint-Ouen to Carrefour Pleyel.
  • June 27, 1973: The line was extended south from Saint-Lazare to Miromesnil.
  • February 18, 1975: The line was extended south from Miromesnil to Champs-Elysées - Clémenceau.
  • May 26, 1976: The line was extended north from Carrefour Pleyel to Saint-Denis - Basilique.
  • November 9, 1976: The line was extended from Champs-Elysées to Invalides. Line 14 was eliminated as a separate line (leaving its number available to be reused in 1998) and incorporated into Line 13. The line was extended south from Porte de Vanves to Châtillon - Montrouge.
  • May 9, 1980: The northwestern branch of the line was extended from Porte de Clichy to Asnières - Gennevilliers.
  • May 25, 1998: The northern branch was extended from Basilique de Saint-Denis to Saint-Denis - Université.
  • June 14, 2008: The northwestern branch was extended from Gabriel Péri to Les Courtilles.

I like the Guy Moquet station, especially the modern lighting that adds to the ambiance.

Fitness Walk!

So did you see how much time it takes to go from Opera to St-Augustin?

That walk would have last at least 90 minutes! Did you really took the time for that just for the pictures? Poor Minato, and thank you for this one!

Not at all. If you walk at regular pace, it takes less than 30 minutes to go from Opéra to Saint Augustin underground.

Of course but I took picture in every stations, I didn't just walk and I was with Metropolitan (a former member of SCC).
It was fun, we also tried to find the position of the tunnels.

It would seem that many of the Line 10 trains are outdated, no?

What model of MF-67 are they? Have they ever been refurbished?

The interior was renovated in the late 90s.
