The Mure Railway, Grenoble, France
Inaugurated in July 1888, the La Mure railway covers a distance of 30km and has a 560m range in altitude. Originally intended to transport the anthracite produced at La Mure to the station at St-Georges-de-Commiers, thereby linking it to the national railway network, it rises up to a high point of 924m, at the tunnel of Festinière.
During the journey you will see the Pierre Percée, as well as the Passage de la Rivoire, which juts out over the Drac gorge, the Viaduc de Vaulx (170m with nine arches) and the superimposed viaducts of La Lousse. (via Michelin Travel)
