Monday 28 November - A Contrast in Stations then Monceau

I went along to look at Gare de l'Est and Gare du Nord this morning.  The Gare de l'Est was its usual calm self with the beautiful covered salon concourses leading to the 30 platform concourse (the final 5 or 6 platforms are unused at present).

A new way tom provide  additional food selling places

Locomotive cleaners who like the bugs caught on the front of locomotives

This ICE from Frankfurt was about 30 minutes late
A short walk past the site of the embryonic hotel brought me to the chaos of the Gare du Nord.  There is additional security for the trains to Brussels and this has created a chaotic state for the concourse.  I hate to think what it will be like in the holiday season.  

Blazon on 15058
This afternoon I went to Ternes to get tickets for the Messiah from FNAC.  It was a lovely sunny day although the wind was very cold but I walked back through Monceau Park.  It was mid afternoon and the achoolkids were out in force.
