is a ghost station
on the Paris Métro
. It lies on an unused connecting branch between lines 3bis
. Haxo on fr.Wikipedia
The station is situated on a line which was constructed in the 1920s between Porte des Lilas
(line 3bis) and Pré Saint-Gervais
(line 7bis). A single track was built linking Place des Fêtes
to Porte des Lilas, known as la voie des Fêtes
, with one intermediate station, Haxo. For traffic in the other direction, another track was constructed linking Porte des Lilas to Pré Saint-Gervais, with no intermediate station, called la voie navette
. Consequently, Haxo would have been a single-direction station with only one platform.
However, despite the network owners, the City of Paris
, having delivered the necessary infrastructure, the railway operator, Compagnie du chemin de fer métropolitain de Paris
, did not consider a service to be sufficiently profitable.
Service trains have never called at Haxo, and no access to street level was ever constructed. and the station was also used to demonstrate the MF 88 rolling stock
to the press
in 1993 (the "1993" sign can be seen on some pictures, more than 10 years later).
