I've been trying to visit La Vapeur du Trieux for years, but something has always got in the way. It's a tricky journey from Cornwall - ferry from Plymouth to Roscoff, then either a couple of hours' drive or a three-train session on the SCNF;...More

We have been recommended the train trip to Pontrieux for the landscapes and the originality to travel with a steam train. The truth is that the landscapes are limited to the forest. On the way to Pontrieux the train stops in La Maison du Littoral...More

Whilst travelling on a steam train can be fun, for 46 euros return for two, this was not money well spent. The whole train is in a filthy state. So much so that you cannot see out of the windows. This trip was so bad...More

Biggest waste of money ever - 50 euros for 4 adults. Track stupidly squeaky the whole journey so much so you wanted to close the door. My 3 year old son who loves trains hated it as it was so noisy. Absolutely would not recommend
