Alongside the work I have done on the Central Var Line l have pulled together a series of posts about Le Macaron - the metre-gauge line along the coast between Toulon and Saint-Raphael. This is the first of these posts:

The second post in the series about the coastal line out of Toulon shows the competition it faced from other forms of transport and then focusses on the two main railway stations in Toulon ... first the PLM Station (SNCF now) and then the terminus of Le Chemin de Fer du Sud, the line that we will concentrate on in this series of posts.

The third post looks at one of the competitors to Le Macaron. The tramways of Toulon. The network reached as far as the town centre of Hyeres.

This is the next post in a series about the Chemins de Fer du Sud de la France's Coastal line between Toulon and Saint-Raphael. This post focusses on the PLM line which both competed for passenger traffic with Le Macaron between Toulon and Hyeres but also provided an essential link into the national network through the exchange sidings at Hyeres.

This post relates to the length of Le Macaron between the terminus in Toulon and the town of Hyeres.

This next post takes us back to La Londes and allows us to discover the various branch-lines which left the main line here. These branch-lines served mining interests and a torpedo factory and provided significant amounts of good traffic for the line.

We continue our journey along Le Macaron, the Coastal Line of Les Chemins de Fer du Sud de la France. This length runs from Bormes to Cavalaire:
