Strange Blue Graffiti

The "Petite Ceinture" or "PC" (Small Belt) is an abandoned railway line in the city of Paris (France).­

The PC circles around Paris, hence the name "Small Belt".­ It was used for metro-type passenger trains until 1934.­ Since then, it is completely abandoned, made obsolete by the new underground metro lines, but most of the rails, tunnels and stations still exist.­ The PC mostly runs in trench or overpasses, with a few tunnel segments.­

A classic destination for Parisian graffiti artists and urban explorers! Of course, this is a NO TRESPASSING area, and the Police Ferroviaire (Railway Police) occasionally writes hefty tickets to trespassers.­
