  Not the Railway Station
by NiceLife

Some 200 yards north of the the real railway station of Nice Ville - Gare SNCF -- stands this splendid edifice to the golden age of rail , the Gare Chemin de Fer de Provence.

Now just a shell, derelict and in disrepair, the real working station for the Chemin de Fer is an unprepossesing white concrete block around the corner. Here you catch the narrow-guage railway that takes you 120 km inland through the Var valley along the Route Napoleon to Digne.
