RIP Gare Du Nord Silvers

Word has it from our friends Teh Grifters that the silver 'Gris' trains of Paris ran their last service
this week. These were the first trains i painted as a teenger on my first trip to Paris, i had never ever seen 
them before and felt like i was painting a New York subway. Every time i returned i looked forward
to painting one and they got harder to find as old spots filled up with newer, more protected bullet
type Bombardier units. Here is a selection of photo's taken of Le Petit Gris over the past few years.
