Studienfahrt mit Bahn und Bus zu Museumsbahnen in Frankreich 22. – 25. Juli 2014: 22 July 2014 - 25 July 2014

Combined rail- and bus-tour to museum lines in France: France is a very interesting country for travelling and offers also quite a lot of attractive museum- and touristic railways. Some of these are not easy to reach as they are disconnected from the regular passenger network. So for this IBSE study tour we used a coach in order to visit some of such lines in an attractive landscape. The lines were visited by special trains or on reserved places in scheduled trains. Additional to this two draisine lines were visited.

Engine BB 404 of SNCFV makes ready for departure the "Train du Marché" in Tournon-sur-Rhône-Saint-Jean-de-Muzols. IBSE e. V. had booked the last coach of this train; 22nd July 2014.

Der IBSE-Sonderzug steht in Montfaucon zur Rückfahrt nach St. Agrève bereit. Beim Besuch der "Chemin de Fer du Velay" konnte der kurz zuvor stillgelegte Abschnitt Montfaucon - Dunières leider nicht mehr befahren werden. Doch es war damals noch nicht bekannt, dass auch der Abschnitt Montfaucon - Raucoules-Brossettes stillgelegt werden sollte. Weniger als ein Jahr nach dieser Aufnahme (22.07.2014) erreichte dann am 15.07.2015 letztmals ein Reisezug den Bahnhof Montfaucon.
