Images of a French Railroad

Photographic impressions collected from near and far…

About 125 miles north of the city of Avignon along the Rhône River in southern France is Doux Gorges, located in Saint-Jean-de-Muzols, a commune (community) in the Ardèche department. The area features some of the most beautiful and remote wilderness in France and attracts hikers and bikers from all over.

A network of railway lines was constructed around Vivarais between 1898 and 1903 to provide access to markets for farms and vineyards in remote areas of the region. In 1970 service was restored and the new Tournon – Lamastre line, 21 miles long, was officially opened for full service in April. Pulled by restored steam engines over one hundred years old, today’s train cars carry passengers into the most beautiful and inaccessible part of the Doux Gorges.
