Bourget Stations

Stations Bourget - Seine-Saint-Denis - FranceTwo stations, one close to the other, are situated in Le Bourget. They are on the same railroad line, near an important rail marshalling yard and on a line connecting the networks along the “Grande Ceinture” (Great Belt Link)  and one of the networks of the Northeast of France. This network connects Gare du Nord station to Soissons and over to the Belgian border.

The station of Bourget-Drancy (RER B) is today served by the line connecting the gare du Nord station to Soissons. This line built between 1860 and 1864, by the northeast railroad company was known as “line of the Plain” (Saint-Denis) to Hirson.

The station built at this time was completely destroyed by the Prussians during the Franco-Prussian war in 1870. It was reconstructed in 1871.

The deportation convoys for Auschwitz

The Bourget station of “la Grande Ceinture” was built in 1882 with the construction of the section connecting Noisy-le-Sec to Bourget. “La Grande Ceinture” was used to double and unload the “Petite Ceinture” of Paris, to facilitate exchange between the various national networks.

From March 27th 1942 to June 23rd 1943, forty two deportation convoys from the Drancy camp left the station Bourget-Drancy, essentially for Auschwitz.

The station was renovated in the 2008 RER B NORD restoration program. The main building was renovated, elevators were installed and platforms were modernized.
