Paris Metro Heritage

Gathered in a hangar on the outskirts of Paris, hundreds of Metro, tram and buses that have been
circulating on, and below the streets of Paris throughout the 20th century.

It was only 20 years ago that there was a first and second class carriage on the Paris subway, 
and in the early 20th century all the trains were made entirely from wood, but after an accident
in 1903, all vehicles were gradually with todays metal framed wagons.

Over 11,000 sq metres in a hangar at Villeneuve, trams, double deckers, metros and RER sit, 
most in good condition, and are visitable during the heritage days in September.
