This is a bit wow:

RER - Station Châtelet les Halles - Sculptures: IIlio Signori - Bas relief: Trémois
Cartes Postale


The architectural choices from back then make sense when seeing such pics, it looked good. The level of neglect / indifference for the station to reach the state in which it is now in not even a handful of decades must have been really high.

This summer, like every year, the central section of the RER C was closed ; this time, the surface building at Boulainvilliers was renovated.

For your information, i'm currently building the RER C for OpenRails :


(for historical reasons, i don't use the same alias but it's me !)

Many thanks to all for your pics ! They'll be very useful for this project.

Thanks for these pics, Vincent !

BTW here is a little historical recap I posted few days ago on the French sub-forum regarding this lovely station :

La gare de nos jours (lors de la couverture, ils ont repris le style des arches de la passerelle d'origine enjambant les voies):

BONUS (l'entrée secondaire coté rue Singer):

From Rail Journal


CDG Express secures €1.7bn state loan
November 22, 2017

FRANCE’s finance minister Mr Bruno Le Maire confirmed to the National Assembly on November 20 that the state will provide a €1.7bn loan to ensure the CDG Express rail link to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport is completed in time for the 2024 Olympic Games, which will be hosted by the French capital

According to a report in French newspaper Les Echos, the concession company of Caisse des Dépôts, Paris Airports, and SNCF Network will be able to access the first €295m tranche of the loan in 2019
