This station was in works last year. Preparation of the subway extension to the new terminal.
The fluorescent fixture is 58w 4000k.

Did you take other pictures of lighting in Paris ?

Yes, this station was undergoing renovations. The fittings were suspended with zip ties. Most 58 watt tubes were 4000 K but 2 were 6500 k. There were 2 other stuck starters. In fact, thèse were the only eol tubes that I saw on the Paris métro .

The only other Paris lighting pictures I have are in my gallery. It wasn't a lighting trip as I had 12 students of 15 years old to take care of. If I find more on the camera card, I will upload them.

Sorry for the typos as I am typing on an iPod touch and I am not used to it.
