Recalling the atmosphere of the 'Belle Epoque', come and discover the delights of the Baie de Somme on board one of our authentic trains of yesteryear.
In the north of France on the Picardy coast, ride on a steam train around one of the most beautiful bays in the world, preserved in its wild state. Among marshes, salt marshes, willows and reeds, beside the sea and alongside the Baie de Somme, bring the family, or come with friends or in a group like so many travellers on the sea-bathers' railway since 1887.
There's not a minute to lose! All aboard for a journey through time!
