From fast paced action movies to lighthearted comic sitcoms, the Gare du Ford station made its appearance in many popular Hollywood movies. More than merely a terminal, the architecture of this station seems like putting up the prototypes of the cities it connects, in the form of statues placed in the front yard.
With enormous walkways and an astronomical top, this terminal captures and exhibits every minute impulse that represents the country. Built in Victorian-Gothic style, this place is more than just a subway terminal; it has a bar, food market, dining space, private hall, and the Whispering Gallery.
