Take the Edmond Rostand street and go down the lane concealed in the greenery. The CBR bridge is the last remnant of a metropolitan railroad that connected Reims, its ports (port on the canal and dry port) and its areas of activity to the surrounding villages. To the north, the line serves the villages of the massif of St Thierry. At Cormicy the line runs in two directions, towards Soissons in the east and towards Rethel in the west. The station was a pole of development outside the walls of the city with its hotels and restaurants, its sorting for the shipment of local materials (wood, ashes used as fertilizer and bricks in particular).
