A hard line to build...

Nucourt station is one of the four stations on the line from Magny-en-Vexin to Chars. This line, qualified as "secondary and local" was granted in July 1865 to a contractor, Mr. Debrousse. He had two years to finish the line in return for the right to exploit it for 99 years. It was only put into service on August 13, 1871. The delay was due to a number of lawsuits, to the long process of expropriation, technical difficulties and the war of 1870-1871. In 1877, it only took two hours to get to Paris from Nucourt, compared to 12 hours in 1801. In 1879, 40,000 passengers and 32,000 tons of freight had already been transported. The line was bought by the state in 1900, which conceded it to the railway company Chemins de fer de l'Ouest, and it was reclassified as a general line. In 1914, the service had six round trips per day by omnibus. The development of cars and coaches led to the discontinuation of passenger rail transport in 1952, while freight transport continued until 1987. The Nucourt / Magny-en-Vexin stretch is now a pleasant hiking trail.



... That was part of a dense network

This line was part of a larger rail network. In 1830 the government decided to link Paris to the sea. A direct route called "Les Plateaux" was planned. It left Paris (Gare du Nord), travelled via Saint-Denis and Pontoise, and through the French Vexin towards Gisors. From there, three sections branched off to Rouen, Le Havre and Dieppe. The service was inaugurated in August 1848.
