^ You are right. The Paris metro is unique and has a lot of character. It is one of those cities like NYC, London and Tokyo where the metro or subway is so interwoven into the city's fabric...a real Parisian institution. In fact, Parisians have a saying: métro, boulot, dodo (subway, work, sleep)...as a way to complain about life.

Thanks for nice pics, Minato Ku. It will be even greater if you post some city views from trains when they are not underground, as well as the train's photos when they cross rivers or are just on their was on bridges.

It seems like Paris really loves their side-platforms. I haven't really seen an island platform station on the thread yet, or maybe I missed it somewhere.

I think the intention was not the "modern look" but the "Island Platforms" type stations.

I personally prefer side platforms over island ones, unless if it was a big busy station like a transfer point.

Today in my favorite line, I should say that these pictures was not taken during the rush hour.

few seconds after the depart of the last train.


For the southern part the traffic is less important.


When I see the platform for the northern part I am happy to live in the southern line 13.
