Rather than suffer the Metro like most Parisians do on a daily basis, why not celebrate it instead? 2010 is the 100th anniversary of the 'Ligne Nord-Sud', today's line 12, and several events are planned to mark the occasion. At the Porte de Versailles station you can visit a train from 1910 or look at a selection of rarely seen photos of the old N-S company. If you are lucky, you may even be able to ride on one of the 1930s Sprague-Thomson trains that will be operating on the line on Saturday and Sunday.
