    Have decided this year to find some steam/heritage railways on our tour in France and probably Germany this year. Not railway enthusiasts as such but it's a great way to see some scenery and we have enjoyed trips in the UK and a couple of times in France and Switzerland.

    Would be grateful if anyone can suggest steam/heritage railways in France or Germany for us to explore and perhaps put on our route. Thank you.

    Glad it's useful :) Have been on the one from Martel and the Gentian Express . You can stay with your van just beside the Gentian Express :)

    There is a railway just a short walk from the aire at Le Crotoy.
