Lusigny-sur-Barse is a commune in the Aube department in north-central France.

Geography[edit]

The Barse flows through the commune.

The most recognisable building in Lusigny, throughout France (and abroad), is undoubtedly its railway station. Reproduced in miniature by the firm Jouef (maker of HO gauge electric trains, now a subsidiary of Hornby), the building gave hours of happiness to several generations of French children. The station was closed by the SNCF in the 1990s.
