Eurostar, Thalys and other trains. Welcome in Gare du Nord, Paris !

Recommended Posts

Paris Gare du Nord or Paris Nord.

This is the busiest train station in Europe with almost 200 million passengers a year.

Gare du Nord serves the north of Paris metropolitan area, the north of France and the north of Europe

Surface suburban platforms


Regional  and intercity lines platforms.

The Eurostar in the picture is not an Eurostar, it is a regular french TGV high speed service that use extra Eurostar stock.


Thalys (high speed train to Belgium, Netherlands and Germany)




Eurostar platforms are segregrated from the rest of the station, because it is not in Schengen area (border free zone).

I love the EuroStar pics... It reminds me of the old EuroStar Italia trains we used to have in Italy before they changed the name to Frecciarossa...  <_<

Wow. These pics positively rock. Solid direct hits, and I'm learning something new here on railroads serving Europe. This is really cool. Good way to start the morning checking this out these excellent pics with commentary, very informative ......
