This Is What Montreal's Metro Stations Were Originally Going To Look Like

Before they were metro stations, they were dioramas. Long before the age of computers, people had to physically build scale models of buildings before they were built, and we managed to find the original mini-version of Montreal's metro stations.

We think they should have used Lego, but the dioramas still look pretty sweet, and are near doubles of their real-world counterparts.

Check out a sample of Montreal's metro station models below.
