By contrast the CFD/EC approach to stations was more conventional: they took Pierre Christiann's designs and scaled them up to 1:1 Very Happy Exclamation

This is Melleran on the CFD line between St Saviol and St Jean d'Angely. It's actually in Deux Sevres but on a Charente line, not the TDS



At St Saviol (Vienne) the line ended next to the PO station. This was the crossing keepers cottage where the line crossed the D948 (ex N148). Unfortunately, since taking this pic about ten years ago, the building has fallen down. Crying or Very sad



Luxe (Charente) is on the EC line between Segonzac and St Angeau:



It has a locoshed, now with a more recent addition:



"Haltes" got an altogether more modest version. This is at Puyreau, just along the line from Luxe: now in use by the county engineers dept. (DDE) as a store: it had a nice stock of redundant signposts.

No, that was Luxe again. This is the "halte" at Puyreaux
