History :

The railway line from St-Girons to Foix was declared of public utility by a law dating from August 26th 1884.
It operated for a bit less than half a century and its commissioning replaced the former horse-drawn railway service.
Both travellers and merchandises were transported twice or three times daily in both directions.
The railway line ended up being completely overshadowed by road traffic and so was suppressed in 1955.

Access


From St-Girons

Take the D 117 road in the direction of Foix. After the town exit panel, take the first little road on the right in the direction of the "Aire des gens du voyage". After about 500 metres on a small tarred road, on the left, you'll arrive at the departure and arrival point of the Green Track. As parking space has not been realised yet, we suggest you'd park your car at the car-sharing area along the road to Foix, first left after the little road that leads you to the Green Track. The area is marked by a sign-post.

From St-Girons, take the D 117 road in the direction of Foix. After about 6 km, turn right in the direction of Birosse (after the agricultural equipment dealer). 150 Metres further on, you can park your car along the sports fields.
