The secondary railways of the French Departement of the Herault were built to standard gauge. They were usually built to light rail standards although on occasions were strengthened to carry more substantial traffic.

The region had a significant viniculture and wine was one of the major commodities transported via the secondary lines of the departement.

The Gare du Nord, Beziers is no longer an active station. It was a terminus for two different secondary Iines. The two lines were once linked by a triangular junction which allowed trains to travel through Beziers without visiting the station. The through line disappeared relatively early to make way for a Co-operative building which in turn has given way to a modern block of apartments.

This next post covers the line from Beziers to Penezas.
