This fourth volume, covering the railways of the département of l'Yonne, completes the series of books on the railways of Burgundy. In part one, the standard gauge lines of the département are described. These include the section of the Paris - Lyon main line within the département, and the various transversal lines which connected with it. Also in part one is a special chapter on the once vast steam depot of Laroche-Migennes. This chapter includes many rare and previously unpublished photographs.
In part two, the history of the once extensive metre-gauge systems of the Chemins de Fer de l'Yonne and Chemins de Fer Départementaux are recounted.
Illustrated throughout with photographs, old postcard views, maps, diagrams, track plans and timetables, this volume is bound to appeal to all those with an interest in French railways.
