With the Tourist Train Guîtres-Marcenais, the rustic charm of the country trains of yesteryear is yours. You will be able to change epochs and finda forgotten luxury in these cars built in 1900.
Your journey will begin at the ticket office, which has preserved its 1874 woodwork, and then on the platform where a real "old-fashioned" train will be waiting for you.
On the spot you will be able to visit the station, which has been intact for 140 years and houses a museum of railway objects, and stroll along the platforms to discover carriages, some of which date back to the 19th century.
During 14 kilometers covered in three quarters of an hour in the "discovery" or on the third class wooden benches, smelling the smell of the undergrowth and crossing the gaze of cows (essential for all trains ...) relive the beginnings of the journey of yesteryear.
You will find again the flavour of the journeys of yesteryear, when everything went slower... when you enjoyed the landscapes... in the atmosphere of the picturesque routes, their sounds, whistles, steam...
It was in 1980 that the Association of Friends of the Vallée de l'Isle Railway put its first steam locomotive back into service.
Today the association owns three locomotives, one of which is a steam engine built in 1924.
It also owns Palavas carriages built in 1909, a van dating from 1883 and two walkies.
The Tourist Train Guîtres-Marcenais was awarded the 2013 Tourism Medal.
The station of Guîtres is also the starting point of the Vélorail du Pays Gabay.
