Geocache Description:


 

La ligne TER Clermont-Ferrand-Saint-Etienne, inaugurée à la fin du XIX' siècle, traverse les monts du Forez juste au sud des Bois Noirs, via le bourg de Chabreloche.

Si cette ligne, entre Clermont et Thiers, est l'une de celles qui a vu le plus large gain de fréquentation durant ces quinze dernières années, la portion entre Thiers et Boën est toujours très peu utilisée, avec l'immense majorité des trains qui font terminus dans l'une ou l'autre de ces villes, sans entreprendre la traversée des montagnes.

Il y avait, autrefois, de nombreux arrêts dans les bourgs de montagne entre ces villes. Par exemple, rien que du côté du Puy de Dôme, les communes de La Monnerie, Celles-sur-Durolle et Chabreloche étaient desservies. Mais toutes ces gares ont été fermées dans les années 1970, faute de voyageurs sauf, dans la Loire, à Noirétable, au point le passage le plus haut de la ligne.

Les bâtiments de gare, comme celui-ci, existent toujours, mais ont été réhabilités, qui en logements, qui en entreprises...

 

 

____________________________________________________________________________________

The train line between Clermont-Ferrand ant Saint-Etienne passes through the Forez Mountains, just south of the Bois Noirs. Between Thiers and Clermont, the line is among the ones which have seen the highest increse of passengers since the 90's.

Every single town and village on its course used to have its own train station, but every single one of them closed down between 1960 and 1980, but the one in Noirétable, right on the highest point of the line.

The old station buildings are still here, but have all been converted into housing or businesses...
