Heating in the Halle des Grandes Lignes


Here’s the view of the train platforms in the Halle des Grandes Lignes at Paris Gare du Nord. The building was reconstructed in the 1880’s and is drafty and cold in Winter. (Then again, Ebbsfleet International rail station in England is the same and it was built in 2007).

Still one has to question the wisdom of installing heaters (two of which are visible in the photograph) for passengers to huddle around. How efficient are they and how much energy do they consume? A more environmentally friendly option might be to create some energy efficient waiting rooms.
