This morning.

On Bray Head in Co Wicklow.

Emergency services (second picture) at the scene of a fire which broke out on Bray Head this morning (top) which has caused damage to railway infrastructure – forcing the line between Bray and Greystones to be closed for the rest of the day.

The Chemin de fer de Petite Ceinture (‘Little Belt Railway’) in Paris, built in 1852, largely abandoned since 1935 (aside from one increasingly underused section), lovingly documented since 2011 by photographer Pierre Folk.

As local developers eyeball the land for new apartments and office blocks, Parisian railway enthusiasts want it preserved, possibly transformed into a series of urban parkways like the nearby Promenade Plantée which inspired New York’s High Line.
