    Dictation - Paris - The railway stations 1/2

    Find 10 mistakes in this text.
    Before 1837, Paris was a city without any railway infrastructure. In 1840, Paris had only three small pieres and in 1900, there were about fifty of them, including the stations of the Petite Ceinture. For information, the piers, which were a simple wood and metal construction, precede the stations.
    The capital ' s railway stations have played an important role in the history of the 20th century and have became very popular spaces for the Parisians. The construction of the stations is closely linked to the development of the railways and has profondly transformed a few districts of the capital.
    The Gare St Lazare was the first to be build in 1837 and was quickly folowed by the Gare du Nord, Gare de l ' Est, Gare de Lyon, Gare d ' Austerlitz and Gare Montparnasse, which are the terminus of manline trains.
    All of them have a unique architectural heritage, such as the Gare du Nord with its neo-classical facade featuring 23 sculpture. Behind the imposing aslar facades, the large glass windows that light up the station halls and cover part of the platforms have become the symboles of the 19th century modernity.
