Also known as "Porte Maillot".
The railway is a suburban line, running out of the Gare St. Lazare. It runs in a cutting, or ditch, along a boulevard: it uses under-running third rail for power.
This photo shows a section gap, which has an insulating spacer so that the pick-up shoe can ride smoothly across the gap.
