Oooo I love it (then again it had to do with trains/subways/trolleys)

But beyond that it is a wonderful picture...which Metro station is that?

Metro Center.

I have some other pics I took there as well - architectural stuff

The pictures are wonderful.

One of the things I always loved about the Metro when I was riding it (when we lived outside of D.C.) was the architecture of the stations.

BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is pretty bland when it comes to stations...although there is some new wonderful art on the walls of the extention now.

The "T" (Boston) would have to be my fave for art on the walls. Each station is different and the Park Street station has this wonderful mural to it being the first subway in America...done all with half inch tiles.

Now see, I think the metro architecture is bland - you've seen one, you've seen them all.

That's not to say that others aren't worse.

From what I've heard, the Russian subway system has the best architecture anywhere!

I would say some of the Czech subway stations could give the Russian ones a run for their money.

And the escalators! Easily twice as fast as the US ones, perhaps three times. And with my propensity to take two steps at a time going down, it's almost like flying.

I can't remember what the architecture looks like, but I do remember the escalaters in Prague (Praha?) moving at running speed, having wooden runners on the steps, and being a couple hundred meters long!

Re: Yes and no
Yep. Fast as hell.

(scared some of the locals with that trick)
