Abandoned Train Tunnel - Petite Ceinture Railway - Gare de Montrouge-Ceinture (Paris)

This is a NO TRESPASSING area.­ Enter at your own risks!

This tunnel is in fact an abandoned train station called "Gare de Montrouge-Ceinture", now covered by a slab of concrete.­

I took this photo at night and in an tunnel with no light, so needless to say it was very dark.­ Exposure time was 209s (more than 3 min) at ISO 200, on a tripod (of which you can see the shadow on the track).­ The only light was the ambiant glow from the city street lights outside the tunnel.­

The wavy white line on the left was caused by someone walking in the tunnel with a flash light.­

La Petite-Ceinture (PC) is an abandoned, or some prefer to say, disused, railway line that used to circle Paris.­

The Petite-Ceinture line 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 line mostly runs in trench or overpasses, with a few tunnel segments.­

For more informations on this abandoned railway line (in french), check this Wikipedia article and www.­petiteceinture.­org.
