The world's sexiest subway stations, in 15 Instagrams

The designs for London's new Crossrail stations were released last week, and although they're nice enough, they arguably lack a certain... Instagramability.

Not so with these subterranean stunners from cities around the world. Perhaps for Crossrail 2, each station could shamelessly steal a different look from each, creating a sort of underground Epcot for trainspotters? Just imagine the #crossrailselfies it would generate! Take a look...

1) Paris's steampunk Arts et Metiers station.

OK, it's not technically on the metro. It's literally for tourists. But still!
