Ripe for a trackbed change with a mat for oil...

Yep, very dirty. I didn't see the Train Jaune in the station while I was there. Nor a RENFE tren.

BTW the whole station is neglected and almost crumbling. Lots of disused sidings and old sheds.

First picture: heh, that's the prototype! Second picture: interesting fasteners.

The return train was a more recent model, but it had a pantograph problem. It took us down to Ax-les-Thermes, but there we had to get on a bus that took us to Foix, where we had to wait for the next Toulouse train. Half an hour's delay, very well handled with full information from SNCF staff.
