Le Train d'Artouste was one of the highlights of our recent week-long trip in the French Pyrenees. The weather, of course, is a crucial factor as the cars are open, but we had a beautiful sunny day and this is a "don't miss" experience. The...More

I admit, I was nervous. Le Petit Train d'Artouste is actually the highest train in Europe, and narrow gauge, at that. I knew you had to take a cable-car up to the train station and I pictured some rusty little box dangling over canyons and...More
