Fully opened in 1856 the classic main line between Paris – Lyon – Marseille is is still an important rail artery to this day. Although not as busy as pre-TGV times the line still sees plenty of freight and loco-hauled passenger activity. This programme looks at traffic on the route between north of Mâcon at Fleurville-Pont-de-Vaux to a point south of Chalon-sur-Saône at Varennes-le-Grand.

Filmed on two dates in 2018, material from 2013 is also included as a comparison of how little had changed in the intervening years. Passenger trains featured are a mix of modern-day TGVs as well as push-pull operated locomotive services as well as bi-mode multiple units seen on local stopping trains. Freight traffic has a wide variety of traction and train types to be seen from mixed freight, departmental, block workings, container, automotive and stone. Classic French traction is witnessed as well as a variety of private-operator classes. Types featured include BB7200, BB22200, BB26000, BB27000, BB36000, TGVs, B81xxx, z27500, BB69400, BB67400, class 186, class 66 and G2000 on a variety of workings and liveries.
