Gare de l’Est

Miron Ghiu
A train-spotter in a short trip to Paris

(16'49", 2018)

One of my favorite objectives in my short trip to Paris was to record the sound of the TGVs. I was always fascinated by the idea of being a train-spotter and in my recording-visit to the Gare de l’Est, I had the chance to catch three TGVs and two “regular” trains that sounded and looked like TGVs… I recorded some of the train station’s ambiance, but mostly the trains. Have a good listening at precisely 12.55 pm!
