From the Industrial Narrow Gauge Railway site is this brief description of one of the few working industrial railways in France. I dont know if it is still working but if the reports are correct it was in 2009. Cannot be very far from Carl's place. Anyone know anything about it ?

Briqueterie Lagrive, Lisieux - (500mm Gauge) Railway just over 0.5km in length, used in good weather. Update: 2005 confirmed still working. Update August 2009: Confirmed still in use.

On a visit out to collect my daughter from a weeks horse riding in Villers sur mer by chance we passed the Brickworks at Lisieux.

The works still look very active and alive. We didn't go in and it is now the French annual holidays but now I now where it is (on the main N13 just east of Lisieux) and only 25 minutes away I can visit again.
