The metre gauge Vivarais and Lozère railways were justifiably renowned as among the finest narrow gauge systems in Europe. With a combined total length of 250km (156 miles) during their formative years, they featured extensive civil engineering structures, powerful locomotives and wonderful scenery. Two sections of this once extensive railway system have survived as tourist operations, being regarded as among the finest of their type in mainland Europe. The Tournon based Chemin de Fer du Vivarais is twinned with the Ffestiniog Railway, thereby linking the premier narrow gauge railways of France and Great Britain.
