France Champ de Mars, Ghost station - Paris Jan 17

Recommended Posts

Morning All, 


Im just catching up with afew explores and i thought id start of with this. The plan was to get to this station via the tracks, but that did not happen on the first night, as me and @Pinkman were told to leave the station by some workers as the last train was at the platform (i think they knew our plan) Anyways, walking back to the hotel that morning, feeling sorry for ourselves, we walked past the original entrance to the abandoned station via street level, i was just explaining to Pinkman that this is the original entr.......HANG ON A MINUTE! Looking through the heras fencing down, the door had been kicked off its hinges and light was shining out. So when it was quiet on the streets, i jumped over to see if it would indeed get us into the station, and it did, so over comes Pinkman. 

Both filled with excitement now as we thought we got the easy way in! We had a look around the station before getting our cameras out and guess what, access all areas, BUT THE TRACKS :(

One side of the platforms had been completely sealed off, and the side we could access, were big metal steel doors welded in place with no way onto the tracks. We could see through the gaps the tracks and tunnels, and could smell the Metro, but could not reach them.


So we cracked on with some photos of the station, which to be honest, was better than going home empty handed the first night and i quite enjoyed walking around there.


Some history:


Champ de Mars is a ghost station along line 8 of the Paris Métro, between the stations la Motte-Picquet - Grenelle and École Militaire. It is situated in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, to the southwest of the public garden called Champ de Mars.

The station was opened in 1913 and was closed on September 2, 1939. Today, a station of line C of the RER situated to the northwest of the public garden Champ de Mars has taken its name and is called Champ de Mars - Tour Eiffel, with a connection to line 6 at the station Bir-Hakeim.


Now some photos.

      Was  reminded that I didn't posted anything yet so, here's a post of a recent visit to this mine. This one is not the safest one :-) . Some parts are  already collapsed.
      There are several levels but the lower did we skip. Heard that the air quality is not the best there and we didn't bring the rope ladder .
      Was nice  to explore. Hope you enjoy looking at this.
