Paris Hidden Railway

Having been to Paris lots of times, I still didn't know about this:

I lived there for a year in the 60's and didn't hear about it then.

Never heard of it either. Looks neat. Some of the fotos look somewhat like the undeveloped parts of the "Beltline" here in Atlanta.

That guy is slow. I covered 100% of the line in just a few months in my spare time and discovered tons of fantastic things along the way. The only trouble with my own report is that it is not in any particular geographical order, because I did what I found easy to get to first and did the rest at other times.

Here is my report: http://tinyurl.com/oldrails

And here is the whole Fodor's thread from eleven months ago: http://www.fodors.com/community/euro...e-ceinture.cfm

kerouac---thanks for that. Your fotos remind me very much of the undeveloped part of the Atlanta Beltline and of my exploration of it several years ago prior to development. Walked around it in winter because all snakes were underground then. Some of the areas were pretty dicey and parts were still "alive" to train traffic.
