Line 7bis
Place des Fêtes


Although this station is on the loop, it has two platforms - why? It was originally planned for there to be a through service from Louis Blanc on Line 7bis to Gambetta on Line 3bis. The connection between these two lines was made via a single-track line leaving from this station, through the unopened station of Haxo, and onwards to Porte des Lilas. This idea was abandoned in 1921 and the line is nowadays used to stable trains.
