The rail-subway maps have not kept up. The journey from Cery into downtown Paris has changed, and now terminates at Gare St. Lazare. The new front shoping area od the station is a great facelift improvement over the old. Was there in June 2012.

This 19th century grand railway station- much loved as subject of Impressionist artists- has been remodelled into a modern treasure in the midst of Paris. Must be seen - major shops are located on the 3 to 4 levels inside the station, while trains come and go toward westward destinations. incredibly quiet, and beautiful light. Accessible via bus, metro, RER. Clean, modern lines inside, while retaining the <bones< of the original structure, congratulations to the architect who planned this redesign of urban space; must be experienced!

I truly look forward to feeling the SNCF train start slowing down as we approach Gare St. Lazare. A ton of people go thru this place on any given day so you are bound to not get lonely. Not that I recommend that you talk to strangers but a smile as you rush past (cause that's how you get thru this transitory point) as you make your way to what inevitably is a Paris Metro train never hurts your chances of not getting jostled. It is getting a bit of a renovation as I've been visiting the bathrooms before making my connection and you can't beat the service I've seen. For a mere 50 centimes and a smile to the attendant, you get a pleasant visit to the toilettes, and they have gotten a facelift (ones on the upper level). In the station just in front of the tracks, if you have the time, just stand and watch the people go by you, the cities scroll down the many schedule boards, and the pidgeons swoop down into the station itself. It's a very special station because of the open air exit out into the world of trains. Enjoy it, don't just rush thru it!

There were many artists from the 19th century who painted at this train station. Among them werre Monet, Manet, and Caillebotte. So seeing this train station makes one remember all the paintings and the artists who painted here.
