The journey

Have a good journey!

Located in the north of France on the Picardy coast, the Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme has since 1971 operated the “sea bathers' railway” which began in 1887 .

Along all 27 kilometres of the route you will discover a variety of scenery of flora and fauna in an environment which is being carefully conserved and in which the railway belongs as a permanent feature.

Between land and sea, the Baie de Somme will surprise you with the relaxed rhythms of its historic steam trains...

Thank you for arriving 30 minutes before the departure of the train. There is not a minute to lose! All aboard for a journey through time!

The Resorts to be discovered on the "Réseau des Bains de Mer"

LE CROTOY   
Boasting the only South-facing beach in the North of France, this seaside resort features pre-WWI villas and a small fishing harbour. At low tide, the sea withdraws for miles, uncovering an extensive sandy beach, ideal for walking, riding or sand yachting....

Many famous people visited or lived in Le Crotoy: painters (Sisley, Seurat, Toulouse-Lautrec, later Manessier) and writers (Victor Hugo, Jules Verne, Colette).

NOYELLES SUR MER
This is where the Réseau des Bains de Mer connects with the French
SNCF national rail network. Noyelles is a small village.
You can walk as far as the Nolette Chinese cemetery
(3kms from the station), which perpetuates the memory of these WWI
labourers. 

More information on the  "Chinese Cemetery"





SAINT VALERY SUR SOMME
After having visited the Medieval city with its walls and fortified gates, take a stroll around the fishermen’s district, the yachting harbour, the,herbarium and the Picarvie Museum.
Don’t hesitate to venture out to the Sailors’ Chapel (Chapelle des Marins) which looks out over the Somme Bay. Its architecture, blending white stone and flintstone, is well-known.
