No.

Yes - but only self-service lockers, not a staffed office.

Only Thalys runs direct between Antwerp and Paris. The cheapest fares can be obtained by booking in advance via the Thalys website.

The only real alternative is the Eurolines bus.

It's not only that Thalys is the only train that runs "direct between Antwerp and Paris", it's that there is NO other train between Brussels and Paris, full stop. You can take a "normal" (e.g. InterCity) train as far as Brussels but from there you only have Thalys to Paris-Nord or TGV to Paris-CDG airport, which is equally expensive. There are now no NON-high-speed trains between Belgium and France apart from between Ghent/Kortrijk and Lille; but from Lille to Paris you can still only go by TGV!

Thanks for the tips/advice. Looks like i'd just have to makedo with Thalys then. Now I'm wondering if the lockers would be big enough for my luggage. I plan to go to Antwerp from Amsterdam for a day trip and proceed to Paris after. Need to store my luggage.
