Le train vapeur

In southern France on the Cote de Azur, the GECP runs “Train Pignes” steam on a portion of the metric gauge track from  Nice – Digne-les-Bains, operated regularly by the Railways Provence.

You also come to find the simple joys of travel of yesteryear in old cars towed by an authentic steam locomotive, historical monument, which will take you through the colorful landscapes of the hinterland of Nice and Provence, olive trees to chestnut. Restored and maintained by an association composed exclusively of volunteers, the steam train runs on Sundays each year from May to October.
