I found this for sale.

Needs some work but could make a beautiful home, still with a goods line that runs once a day and 3000 m2 of land for 63,000 euros.

It looks like it's somewhere between Troyes and Dijon. They have erased the name in the photos.

Because it says the postal code is 21330 I've searched for it on Google maps (I know, I have no life...) and I'm pretty sure it is the station at Rue de la Gare, Laignes, Burgundy. Unfortunatly the station looks less pitoresk at Google streeview. Especially with the big factory beside it... Sad

On Google steerview you can see the front of the building. You can compare it with the first two pictures on the broker site Carl posted. You can see the bush in front of the left window in the centre building (definitly another season) and the grayish spot / area on the wall of the left building joining the centre building.
On Flickr I found a picture of the track side. Click here and compare it with the thirth picture on te site of the broker (for instance boards/plating on the midle and right side window of the center building are exactly the same, brickwork on little left building is similar). The fencing is gone though...

Great find Paul... I couldn't find it!

I see now it is on the freight only line west/south west from Châtillon sur Seine to Nuits.
There is no longer a passenger train service at Châtillon which was once a large junction station. Sad

I think 63,000€ might be a bit much for that.....!
