An unusual train

The red and yellow car is called the Picasso in reference to the artist's Cubist period. The shape you see coming out of the car is the driver's cabin.

5 possible departures

Departing from Pontivy

Enter the hall of Pontivy station, look up and discover the inscription “Napoleonville” which is still there. Take a trip to the station, passing by the counter which houses the shop with products derived from the Napoléon express.
