Personal diary



What if you had the opportunity to travel back in time by boarding exceptional trains?
This is what our funny guides offer you: Micheline, Laurette, Jules & Bernard.

After having made you dream for two years in the most beautiful pieces of the museum's collection, it's a whole new story and new trains that they invite you to discover this summer...

During one of their many visits to the museum, our four guides one day found - in a postal van - a diary which, obviously, never reached its addressee. It tells a moving love story, that of Madeleine and Paul. We are in 1940, in Langres.

Why was this diary found so many years after the events? Who are the heroes of this story? What have they become ? Where will this quest for truth lead us?

From train to train, its endearing characters, as crazy as they are colorful, will make you relive a great love story that will end depending on the choice you decide to make!

A visit full of emotion awaits you at the Cité du Train. So, drive Simone!

An original creation, for the Cité du Train - SNCF Heritage, by Compagnie Versatile.
