Been meaning to experience this steam railway trip for some time. The journey takes about 40 minutes and costs 15 euros for a single journey and 3.5 euros back on modern train. The route is very picturesque. The steam train runs during the tourist season,...More

We had a lovely day out on this steam train ride and I would go time and time again. A lovely walk from the station and a horse & carriage ride back.

This is my second trip on this train, which has been operating with various steam and diesel engines down the years. If you like a touch of nostalgia, vintage carriages, a trundle alongside an estuary between Paimpol and Pontrieux then this trip may be for...More

Hi, yes the train is running in July. You spend between 4:30h and 6h in the town, it's depending to the day of travel. Dogs in leash are allowed in the train
