We went on the little yellow train with our train mad children. The carriages offer some protection against the direct sunlight but are very warm. The scenery is stunning as you wind up into the foothills of the Pyrenees. The seats are not the plushest but you spend more time looking out of the window than worrying about a numb... More

We took a return trip Villefranche - Mont Louis with or two kids, 7 and 9 years old, and we sat in the open cabin. Be sure to bring enough water on a hot day. The trip was great, the views and the dark tunnels were really appreciated. We really enjoyed the ride and had a great afternoon!

This is a wonderful way to discover the hills. A lot of stunning views of different parts of the area.

The little yellow train trip into the Pyrenees was the highlight of my French adventure. I loved it!!!

Having done this last year, we returned this year with another family member, wanting them to take part in the amazing experience we encountered. How wrong we were! Rather than having the train which is pictured on all advertising material, we had a standard train with no outdoor carriages, no proper opening windows, and we weren't even able to sit... More

Well really disappointed. Came 2 years ago and it was great. Little open train. This time too full and a closed modern train. No atmosphere.

We rode the yellow train from bourg madame to villefranche in the outside seats and had a wonderful experience. It is a slow way to enjoy the Pyrenees without having to get behind the wheel. The downhill to villefranche was rip snorting and we hung on as we raced down the remaining hills to our destination. Fabulous.

My wife and I took the Little Yellow Train in early May, 2015. Although it lacks the amenities of some of the more famous train rides in Europe (The Glacier Express for example), it offers spectacular views that rival those of the more well-known routes. And, it's a lot easier on the pocketbook. The train runs from Villefranche de Conflent... More

We travelled in May before the height of the tourist season. We bought our ticket at the station in Villefranche le Conflet and then went to explore the beautiful nearby town. On returning to the station to board the train, the one outside carriage was full, but as it was a sunny day we didn't mind being inside. As the... More

We got the train from Villefranche-de-conflient up to Font Romeu which is the most scenic part of the route. The train moves very slowly and takes approx 100 mins for this part of the journey, but this gives you plenty of time to enjoy the spectacular scenery and take photos. It is quite a strenuous hour long walk from the... More
