Station designEdit

Magenta features a broad, open design with high and airy ceilings, creating a different atmosphere than the Paris Métro, whose station designs can become rather claustrophobic. The materials also differ from regular subway stations, with wood and metal contrasting each other. There are nine levels in the station, with the RER using the lower-most basement.

There are four tracks that flank two island platforms. They are numbered as tracks 51, 52, 53, and 54. Track 51 is used for trains to Chelles-Gournay. Track 53 serves Tournan. Tracks 52 and 54 are always used for service to Haussmann–Saint-Lazare.
