Railway and timber

A pile of tramway sleepers

A mere hundred years ago, few inhabitants of the Ardennes owned a car or travelled by tram. The majority of these tramways have now disappeared. Take the tourist Tramway of the Aisne, for example, which travelled the length of the valley below the forest park at Dochamps. The number of sleepers you see here was sufficient to lay 43 m of railway track.
