Passage des Voûtes (derrière l'église) - Meyras

In Ardèche, there are no more trains… - Already 50 years old. - March 9,1969, the passenger service on the railway lines of southern Ardeche disappears. - 1 April 1988, freight transport is abolished thus putting an end to all traffic on our railways. Since then, after having campaigned for several years in viaduct 07, andré ROUY said "Dédé l'Ardéchois" son and grandson of railroad workers, he makes resistance and creates a small museum quite unusual in the heart of the medieval village of Meyras. The weight of a century and a half of railway history can not be neglected. Dédé won… - More than 2,500 people have already boarded the "Nostalgie" train and come from the Ardèche, neighboring departments and even from all over the world. To date, 16 different nationalities have discovered this space dedicated to the railway and many gifts have come to enrich the collection. Discover the history of the railway in southern Ardèche, by visiting - "The Small Museum in Dédé" - And yes ! Return of the train, reflection of the life of yesteryear, but alas only by the writing, the photos, the documents, the models and the testimonies… - Dédé the Ardéchois, author of the book "The fabulous history of the railroad in Southern Ardèche ", always with emotion, tells the railway past to the passionate visitors of trains.
