Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme, is a preserved railway in northern France. The line is one of the closest French heritage lines to the UK, Noyelles is 73 kilometres from Boulogne-sur-Mer and 105 kilometres from Calais. A part of the line has dual gauge track, and although forming part of a group of five lines, at least a part of it has always been open to traffic. A branch to St. Valery had been proposed as early as 1845. In 1853 the Chemin de Fer du Nord was granted permission to build a single track branch from Noyelles to St. Valery. This 5.6 kilometres long line crossed the River Dien by means of a 1,367 metres long wooden trestle bridge.show more
