La Gare Saint-Lazare

My Paris-weekend hotel was up behind the Saint-Lazare train station. The station is listed as one of the busiest train stations in Europe, the second busiest station in France after the Gare du Nord. On Saturday morning, I got out early for a walk and the first place I went was to the Place de l'Europe. It's essentially a bridge over the tracks behind the Gare Saint-Lazare.

Being the train nerd that I am, I had to take a picture of the back-end of the station. There wasn't very much activity, it being early on a Saturday morning and a strike day to boot. But still. My nerdiness was satisfied and I moved on toward the nearby Batignolles neighborhood.
