Four O'Clock Factoid: Gare du Nord

Four O'Clock Factoid is a daily feature on Track Twenty-Nine helping to get you through the workday with a bit of useless knowledge.

Paris' Gare du Nord is the busiest train station in Europe. It hosts trains bound for London (via the Chunnel), northern France, Belgium, and Germany. An estimated 180 million travelers per year pass through the station. Service began in 1864, before the station was even complete.
