TAVANNES

Here is another Flickr set, Tavannes is a small station on the SBB route from Biel to Moutier. It is also a terminus of the Central of Jura metre gauge line from Noirmont.

There is  (or was) some interchange of freight between the 2 systems either via rollschemell or by container. On my last visit containers were being transported on the CJ (possibly household rubbish) to the station hauled by an ex RhB Chur-Arosa railcar and then loaded onto special lorries rather than the SBB. Possibly the destination was a local landfill.

Take a look at the wonderful architecture of the hotels by the station!
