We googled when the steam train was running and went for that time 11:00. Arrived about 30 min. early in Mid-September but easily got tickets for €10.50 each. It might have been an idea to book ahead but we were out of season. Journey is...More

This is a must for train enthusiasts and non - enthusiasts alike; old and young. A 8km stretch of track that clings to the cliffs above the Dordogne valley and gives the most incredible views. High days and holidays the open, seated carriages (dating back...More
