The first tourist railways appeared in France at the end of the 1960s and early 1970s and the Cernay Saint-André-Sentheim line was one of the first.
This stretch of track and stations have retained their authenticity almost intact. These are the remaining examples of the old railways that travelled from Cernay to Sewen in the early 20th century until 1960. That is why they are often used as locations for movies.
You will thoroughly enjoy the 13.65 km tourist journey between Cernay-Saint André and Sentheim on board this steam train, listed as a historic monument. Discover the old-fashioned charm of olden day stations while crossing the piedmont of the Vosges among the mixed scents of smoke and wild flowers.
