Trains from Gueret to Limoges
by edmoraz • Sat 21 Mar 2009 21:02

Hi Everyone

When we are over in June to give the OH a break from driving we where thinking of taking the train to Limoges for a day out. Has anyone done this ? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Cant wait to get back over there.

Hi Ange,
Yes, I use this service occasionally, boarding the train in Vielleville. This is a "ligne secondaire", so the service is neither frequent or fast, but it's a pleasant enough alternative to driving.
Trains from Gueret leave at: 06.22, 07.38, 09.10 & 12.51. Return times are: 15.53, 17.27, 18.40 & 19.03. The journey takes just over an hour, depending on how many stops it makes, not all trains stop at all the stations and this is a weekday timetable, there is only a limited service on Saturdays, and none on Sundays, except via La Souterraine, by bus!
Hope this helps,
Kind Regards, Mike

Thanks for that Mike, we will give it a go. I understand there is more than one station in Limoges, is there an equivalent to Limoges Central? :) :?

Ange,
There are a few suburban stations, but the main station is Limoges Benedictins, it is a casual 10 minute walk to the city centre, or there is a bus about every 15mins (go down in the glass elevator on your right when you come out of the main entrance)

Cheers, Mike

Similar service from Eymoutiers to Limoges Benedictins via St Priest Taurion ideal for the sud-creusois.
