Originally, the Cement Railroad was built by the General Company of Asfaltos and Portland Asland for transporting cement of the "Clot del Moro" factory and It was the smallest public railway in Spain, since its track width was 60 centimeters.
Its route began at the same factory in Clot del Moro and went to Guardiola de Berguedà, where it linked to the Catalan Railways: there were transshipments of both cement and various merchandise. The first years the railroad served only for the transport of the factory, but from August 1st, 1914 it began to provide public passenger service.
His first years were for the exclusive use of the factory, but during the 1920s and the following decades the lane provided an invaluable service in the Alt Berguedà region by leaving it out of its traditional isolation and offering an way out to its industrial productions. In 1963 It made his last trip, but since July 1, 2005, It was put into operation again, thanks to the reconstruction of a part of the old railroad track; In the midst of a 3.5 kilometer stretch of singular beauty.
