^ There is no night service though.

Basically this stop is meant for weekend walkers, who get dropped by the train in the middle of the forest by noon the latest, walk through the forest ending up in Fontainebleau where they pick the train back to Paris from the proper Fontainebleau-Avon station. A very pleasant experience.

Gare du Nord
Strike on the SNCF network

The RER B is operated by two companies, the RATP and the SNCF, during strike the line is cut in two.
The northern RER B (SNCF) are arriving and departing from the surface suburban platforms at Gare du Nord.


















The southern RER B (operated by the RATP) are arriving and departing from the underground platforms.



Note that there is no strike in the RATP network, lines are normally operated even if the strike on the northern RER B disrupts the operation on the southern section.

Which sections of the RER A & B are controlled by SNCF? RATP?

They should have a comma after strike, but I honestly can't see any spelling error.

-edit- oh, platform! lol I totally missed that.

While we waiting for another pack of photos, let's see on Chatelet - Les Halle from side of history. This song is performed by Florent Pagny, and it's very good chanson, capturing the moments at this ugly station:

It is in the metro and I don't that it was filmed at Châtelet.
Usually, they shoot movies in Porte des Lilas, we have specific platforms for filmings.

Porte des Lilas is Aldwych of Paris Metro for film crews? I didn't knew that!

There's a webpage about this station on Wikipedia, with a list of some of the movies filmed there :

http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porte_d..._-_Cin.C3.A9ma

Some well-known movies were shooted on other locations (that means, in "real" stations), however, like Luc Besson's "Subway". Another example is The french filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier who refused to use what he considered as a "fake station" and who insisted on filming in the real "Filles du Calvaire" station, during the night, when the trafic was interrupted.


Edit : I found good pictures of some of the ghost stations of the metro, all of these pics were unknown to me :
