Le chemin de fer de Cerdagne is part of the Tentative list of France in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.

The Ligne de Cerdagne, also known as ‘Le Petit Train Jaune, is an electrically operated narrow-gauge railway in the Pyrenees, which was built between 1903 and 1911 to connect the Cerdanya Valley to the French railway network. The line is 63 kilometres long and climbs to an altitude of 1600 meters. The train connects Villefranche-de-Conflent with Latour-de-Carol. About halfway along the line is the Mount-Louis station, making the Petit Train Jaune a direct connection between two sites of the WHS Fortifications of Vauban.
