CJ - Chemin de Fer du Jura

CJ - Chemin de Fer du Jura operates both normal gauge and narrow gauge short-haul services in the rural alpine countryside of the French speaking Kanton Jura, close to the French border. Centers of their operations are Tavannes, Tramelan and SaignelÚgier. The CJ network┤s first parts were opened for traffic already in 1884. They have a network of 85 km total, most of which is 1 metre gauge narrow gauge track electrified with 1500V DC. In 1999 CJ had for the narrow gauge traffic 3 electric locomotives, 1 old diesel locomotive and 13 EMUs, out of which the 1985 built BDe 4/4 II series EMUs are the youngest and most used. For normal gauge (1435 mm) 15 kV traffic CJ has one locomotive and two old EMU wagons.
