Chemin de Fer

de la

Baie de Somme

  The Chemin de Fer de la Baie de Somme (Somme Bay Railway), is a metre gauge railway in northern France. The line is one of the closest French heritage lines to the UK, Noyelles is 73 kilometres (45 mi) from Boulogne-sur-Mer and 105 kilometres (65 mi) from Calais. A part of the line has dual gauge track, and although forming part of a group of five lines, at least a part of it has always been open to traffic.

  The following pictures recount our visits in both 2008 and 2009. More information can be found at the railways website although it is currently only available in french.  So a good excuse to practice your language skills......!
