Dear PornStar,
Most of your photos are from Paris RER, not Paris métro...

Anyway they are very good!

Great new pics of the Paris RER and subway! Now this is the REAL thing!...a big and very busy transport system! In my experience, only London can be said to be as busy or busier in Europe. In rush hour, it can be a stompede in the big hub stations you show.

i found the advertisement on this pix HILARIOUS !!!!!!!

For those who don't understand it's an ad for the use of the metro and it compares the speed of the metro with the speed of cars blocked in traffic jams. and it reads : "up to 70 km/h...even in peak hours !"

i found the idea of the guy holding the metro bar from his car absolutely funny

It's not very special, just the white tiles like everywhere in the Paris metro. It's only a bloody distance to walk from train station Montparnasse to Metro Montparnasse.

for people with a great interest in the Paris métro I suggest this book:

De Bienvenüe à Météor , Un Siècle de Métro en 14 Lignes
by Jean Tricoire.

It was published by the centennial celebration of the Paris métro , not cheap but very good !

it s normal
st lazard metro station is the busiest metro station in paris (except correspondences) with 27 millions passengers per year.

Meteor before its prolongation with st Lazard
had 160 000 passengers per day and after 310 000 passengers per day
Meteor has only 8 stations
