Thumbs up to all volunteer who keeps the old trains run smoothly. The view is amazing, it is one of a kind experience to take a steam train. I was lucky to catch both steam and electric train. It is a must ride for those who travel from a far like me.

Part of the fun in travelling on this railway is actually getting there; we travelled up from Vevey to Blonay on the very steep tram (reductions for hotel area card passes), climbing up high above Lake Geneva. Although there was a special event the following day, all of the staff we met took the time to chat, provide background information,... More

we took the steam train from Blonay to the little train museum in Chamby and we had a great time with open air wagon.the locomotive and the wagons are magnificently restored and maintained, and the trip from Blonay to Champy lasts for about 20 minutes. If the weather is nice and sunny like the one we had it is very... More

Finding myself in Montreux on a very short break with no expectation of rail-based entertainment (which I confess is my idea of a good time) I was ecstatic to discover that this operation was running on the Friday afternoon, and that my Riviera Card enabled me to mke the (spectacular in itself) fiteen-minute journey up the MOB line from Montreux...

Highly efficient and reliable, despite the challenging (yet scenic) trek from Lausanne to my business site in Chamby.

This place is more like an excursion site than a transporting service. However you can get on the working steamed train and travel to Chambi. The train is a little bit noisy and you should pick the cars in the back to avoid the smokes from the head. This is a journey back in time in Lausanne!

This life size railway museum is in the hills behind Vevey, and along with the Swiss Vapeur Parc is a magnet for railway enthusiasts. A steam train as well as electrical ones can be ridden between between Blonay and Chamby, and makes for a worthwhile trip. Note that there are no reductions accorded to Swiss Pass or Swiss Half Fare... More
