    Default Arsenal Metro Ghost Station Sept 16


    Last September myself and Letchbo ventured to Paris to see if we could get a taste of the Abandoned Paris Metro stations. We had some info from Gabe (much appreciated) and we just had to go for it.
    During the day we walked the abandoned La Petite Cienture (another report for another time) and on our first night, hit up Arsenal.
    We made our way to the station and jumped the fence to get onto the platform, and sat in the darkness waiting for the last few trains to go through the station. Ince it all went quiet, we went down onto the tracks to take some shots. After about an hour or so, i heard something in the distance, with Letchbo being down the other end of the station, i jumped up onto the platform with my camera gear, then heard nothing. I litrally got another few shots and i see a train heading towards us, at this point, i am shitting myself. I grab my gear and hide in the corner by the arch of the tunnel into the platform. The train puts its brakes on and caomes to a halt, the red lights from the front of the train reflecting off the wall infront of me, i hear a door opn and hear 2 french voices, i thought, thats it, we are fucked. But amazingly, they chatting for probably only afew minutes but to me felt like forever, then the train goes back on and goes back the way it came. PHEW.
    That was time to pack up and GTFO. Excited to go back though, got another trip planned soon, again with Letchbo and also @Pinkman*this time too
