    Brief reminder of Part 1 (without mistake )
    Paris began to build the first ' drafts ' of stations in 1837. Over the years, the stations were transformed to adapt to the development of rail traffic and passagers flows.

    Progressively, due to the trafic, the stations have been modified, enlarged and modernised. Parisian stations are far from being froze in time. Each one has underwent major transformations in order to adapt to the daily traffic generated by the trains but also to the increasing flow of passengers. After a period of loss of identitey in the middle of the 20th century, the architecture of the stations was renewed thanks to the emergence of high-speed trains in the early 1980s. In paralell with the new urban dimension, the architecture of the large glass halls was bring up to date. The old glass roofs were rehabilitated and renforced to support new glazing in order to give an impression of space and luminosite. The fluidyti of the interior circulation was improved by escalators and lifts.
    With the renovation work, the stations have become real shopping centres in order to integrate perfectly with city life.
    Thus, the main stations have become an integral part of the Parisian landscap, transforming the lives of travellers.
