A good beginning for the 2019 season

Mercredi 3 Avril 2019 A good beginning for the 2019 season The 2019 pre-season began on February 13th, with CFBS trains running on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays until March 10th. This period corresponds to mid-term school holidays in France and Belgium.
2154 passengers were carried during those 12 days of operation, versus 1676 last year at the same period. An increase of ca. 25 per cent, partly due to exceptionally mild weather in February, and more profitable trains as all of them were diesel-hauled.
Meanwhile, preparations for the high season are in full swing at St Valery-Canal works, on the track and in the offices: maintenance of the steam locomotives and carriages, work on the railway infrastructure and commercial activities… Employees and volunteers are busy in the many trades found on a railway.
From Saturday April 6th, steam will be back in the Somme Bay, until October 31st. Not forgetting November 1st, 2nd, 9th and 10th, and the Santa Specials on December 14th and 15th!
