Old tram line

From 1904 to 1931, a "Pau-Oloron-Mauléon" steam railway, also known as the "tram line", linked Pau to Lembeye and Pau to Aire-sur-l'Adour via Garlin. A marshalling yard in Saint-Laurent de Bretagne distributed the convoys on these 2 lines.

This tram included a locomotive, passenger and freight cars. Following the appearance of cars, trucks and buses from 1928/1929, the lines were abolished. The last tram passed on 31 December 1931.
