Remarks & Notes 
Death of a passenger line

The sign announces a Christmas Market for Dec 11 in the small village of La Roche en Brenil. But Christmas will bring a sad gift to the inhabitants: the last passenger train service, made of 1 return trip per day, will cease on Dec 10. Between Avallon and Autun, in the beautiful Morvan region (west of Burgundy), the rail passenger services will end with the service change on Dec 11, 2011. A rural line with low ridership and a track in a derelict state are still good reasons to kill passenger trains in 2011.
