Don't forget that Paris is metro was built using cut and cover method.
I'm not sure, but I don't believe that's the reason why Mirabeau station was built that way...because if so, they could have built the station below the "Place de Barcelone", and not below "Rue Mirabeau" (and it isn't a "cut & cover" station AFAIK, especially because of the double-tunnel).

IMO, the main reason is the Auteuil Hill, and, just after crossing the Seine River (Mirabeau station is located just on the river side), trains towards Auteuil have to climb the hill in order to not have to build some very deep stations on the right bank of the Seine River after Mirabeau.

No, I just find it interesting how some of the stations are built. That is all.

Does this station serve other transit modes as well? It seems to be more oddball than the other large terminal stations like Gare de Lyon & Gare du Nord.

Some of the RER stock in this video almost look like the MF 67 (at least the front anyways)

The MP 55 looks great in this video. They were retired in 1997-2000 when the MP 89 was brought onboard Line 1 correct?

Work near Pont de Stains.










The whole tunnel to Mairie d'Aubervilliers will be built but only the station Front Populaire will open in late 2012.

Which station of line 13 already have PSD's?
Also, are they installing them on any other stations?

Chatillon Montrouge, Miromesnil, Saint Lazare are the station with platform doors on the line 13.

About the other station where doors will be installated, I posted this diagram two month ago.

I don't understand why they don't build PSD's in Mairie de Clichy as it is busiest station outside the center.
