Remarks & Notes 
Death of a passenger line

The train is almost empty. The Avallon-Autun passenger service will cease on Dec 10 2011. Not far from here, the Paris-Lyon high speed line sees hundreds of TGVs per day. It is almost saturated and there is a project for building another Paris Lyon HSL.

The road is the former N6 highway. It used to be the crowded main highway between Paris and Lyon before the A6 motorway was built in the 1960's. Now the road is empty.

The rural life is dying...
