Arrivées et départs à Chantiers

Arrivals and departures inside Versailles-Chantiers train station which I was showing you yesterday. The only problem here is how do you know you'll catch your train?!!
---------------------------------------
Le seul problème ici, c'est comment savoir si on va rater son train avec une horloge pareille ?!!

It can be worse: time ago we had digital clocks around town marking hours like 28:12 or 12:78...

I think I would have to be carrying my phone. It's the only clock I have with me any more.

I don't understand the picture, but maybe I am in a fog. What are the pictures? Is that a clock? I certainly would miss the train, but I wouldn't care since there is always another one if you aren't in a hurry.

I always suspected that the French couldn't be bothered with time schedules. :-)

Run real fast?

Well, clever people can tell time on their watch and a wall clock!

You have to be self-reliant. How odd this is for the area around Paris, though, since it is the cradle of the international timekeeping system.

Hmmm. A challenging clock indeed. What was the architect thinking? ;-)

Such an interesting clock, I too would photograph it much and miss my train.

They say that any clock is right at least twice a day but this certainly ups the ante!

I love that huge clock. Maybe the black thing moves for the hours and you just have to guess at the minutes -- therefore all trains arrive and depart on the hour? I would love to know the story behind this clock. . .
