Metro M1/M2 - Total Recall

10

Driver less trains and stations that look like the setting of sci-fi movie, welcome to Copenhagen Metro lines M1 & M2...

After a relaxing day in Christianshavn, I decided to take the metro back to the hostel. Taking the escalator down into the depths of Christianshavn Station I was first wowed by its sterile stainless steel interior, feeling like the 80’s sci-fi movie Total Recall, if you remember it. Getting of at the next stop it looked just the same as the first one, the third one too. I soon realized all stations here looked exactly alike and quickly became bored with it all.

Getting back on the train, to go to another station where I could switch from the M1 line to something a bit cozier and with stations that’s got character, I suddenly got a chill, realizing I was at the absolute front of the train speeding through the tunnel without a driver. It’s madness! Madness, I tell you! Someone has been looking at too many sci-fi movies and it isn’t me…

    Thanks =))

    @ grenoouille: haha, yeah, I swore to never sleep in a hostel again after this last one, I guess I'm getting old... I actually slept better in Prague where I spent the night outdoors and woke up with all the tourists passing me by looking funny at me...

    Aaarh you beat me to it!! :( Oh, well, I was being really slow anyway... and your metro station shots are much nicer than mine :) How did you manage to find a graffiti-less wall in Nørreport Station?
