L'Estaque – Marseille St.Charles

[fiche Ligne 07] (ERA 33B3) FR751

There are two routes between [Miramas -] L'Estaque and Marseille St.Charles: the main line running direct and a more indirect line via the dock area. Trains calling at Arenc-Euroméditerranée use the latter route; all other trains use the main line. The trains via the dock area may use lines on either side of Marseille Maritime Arenc yard (north of Arenc-Euroméditerranée station), which are reversible.

Raccordement des Chartreux: St.Berthelmy – Marseille Blancarde

[ERT 350, fiche Ligne 07] (ERA 33B3) FR20/752

This curve bypassing Marseille St. Charles to the north is used by TGVs to/from Toulon and beyond not calling at Marseille St.Charles. The local services which ran by this route in 2018 have been withdrawn owing to issues with line occupation.

Owing to the introduction of Ouigo services, most regular TGV services now call at Marseille, leaving fewer trains taking this route.
