The stationEdit

 
Porte Molitor's location on a route map.

The stations Porte de Saint-Cloud (Line 9) and Porte d'Auteuil (Line 10 westbound) are linked both by the service depots of Auteuil and a single platform situated under the boulevard Murat. A station with a central platform is found here and is called Murat or Porte Molitor.

This station was originally intended to service the stadium Parc des Princes on the nights of matches. However, access to the station was never constructed and the station today serves as a garage for trains.[1]

The station's tracks merge into a single track at both ends of the station, so the station would have been served in only one direction (southbound) had it been opened.
