An excellent thread with lots of very good information. [bravo.gif]

The only point that I would like to add is that the Metro Stations themselves are a visual treat in their own right full of marble, artwork and in some of the stations there are statues.

I would fully agree, but it seems like all too often I'm caught up in the mass of humanity that moves you along inside the stations that one forgets to look up and around to truly appreciate how nicely done many stations are.
