Limoges - Angoulême (Nouvelle Aquitaine) Services on the western half of this line were suddenly suspended this spring and no repairs have been carried out yet.
Gueret - Felletin (Nouvelle Aquitaine) After a temporary closure during the winter because of the wrong kind of leaves, a new timetable was introduced to double the train services, from one to two. Before, a TER came from Limoges to Felletin in the evening and returned to Limoges the following morning. The crew stayed overnight. Now there are two return services from Gueret to Felletin, one in mid morning, one in mid afternoon. One would have expected that more passengers on this line would want to travel to the sous-prefecture of Gueret for shopping, medical, administrative reasons rather than the reverse.
Bergerac - Libourne (Nouvelle Aquitaine)
Nouvelle Aquitaine Region succeeded this spring in closing the financing deal to modernise the Bergerac - LIbourne line after SNCF Réseau doubled the cost from 40 million euros to 80 million.
Ligne des Cévennes
The line was closed this spring for two months to conduct engineering work between Langeac and Langogne. However, it was discovered that ARA Region had transferred the budget to Chambéry. So no work was done in Auvergne but the line remained closed ! During the closure, the national rail strike started on April 3rd and no TER trains have operated between Clermont Ferrand and Nîmes since April 3rd, strike or no strike day and no replacement buses are provided. SNCF admits that this is because drivers have been transferred to the Lyon area. The status of the Cevenol train is unclear. Previously, the afternoon service between Clermont-Ferrand and Nîmes was intercité. It was announced that from 2018 Occitanie Region was responsible for the Cevenol and it would receive new Régiolis stock. But the train service is operated by SNCF Clermont Ferrand depot which is in Auvergne Rhône Alpes. No-one has yet explained who is in charge of the Ligne des Cevennes. Meanwhile those wishing to visit or travel on the line are advised caution, any train services are extremely unreliable or unpredictable if you prefer.
Ligne des Alpes
Only 2 return trains out of 5 normally scheduled have been operated between Grenoble and Gap. In fact the second train in the evening from Grenoble is terminus Veynes and does not even reach Gap. This minimum service applies daily since the April 3rd, strike days or not.
