The metro with a view

Not all of the Paris Metro is underground. There’s about 6km of Line 6 elevated above the city streets, it winds its way round the southern half of the city in a semi circle, and  has great views of the city and some of its more famous landmarks. All the images of the city below were taken from the moving train.

It’s an amalgamation of several lines, the earliest sections were built in 1900. Since the 1970’s it has run with rubber tyred rolling stock to cut down the noise for local residents. The tyres are slightly grooved to help with adhesion on the steep gradients
