The Circular Railway of Paris - La Petite Ceinture - Model Railroad Diorama by François Joyau

In the 19th century, when the first railway lines were constructed in Paris, France, there was a circular railway to connect the different suburbs. Then this circular railway was called “Chemin de fer de Petite Ceinture”, also known as “La Petite Ceinture” in Paris. Serving first as a freight-only line, then developing into a passenger service, the circular railway became Paris’ first metro-like urban transport system.

Since its last year of passenger service in 1934 the railway lines are mostly abandoned. Today, people, who like so-called lost places or abandoned places, can enjoy some of the remaining tracks and stations. Because of the special meaning of this railroad for the city of Paris, François Joyau built a small piece of this circular railway in HO scale. His model railway layout, named “57 bis Rue Eiffefe”, takes about 200 cm x 60 cm, and depicts beautiful weathered buildings, backyards and streets.
