Fun Rail association organized, on September 11th, 2021, a journey « on old train » between La Bourboule and Laqueuille stations, in Puy de Dôme, Auvergne Rhône Alpes, France.
The AAATV of Montluçon and SNCF were involved too in the project.
Benefits raised will supply to renew the front of the old cable railway Aval station in La Bourboule.
On the X 2900 « autorail » of AAATV I admired the wonderful landscapes of Dordogne Valley and Sancy mountains that one can discover along the railway line, line on which no passenger train ran since summer of 2015.
I also enjoyed the so peculiar « music » of the « autorail » engine that I recorded going from La Bourboule to Laqueuille.
Like a bonus track, you will find the sound of the engine when the train stopped in La Bourboule, at the end of the journey.
Thanks to Nicolas.
