Want to make a dream come true? The Haut-Forez Railway now offers you its diesel locomotive driving courses! Between theory and practice, come for a day and learn how to drive authentic locomotives from the 60s!
You will thus be able to discover behind the scenes of a profession that has now disappeared and leave with a certificate!

Supervised by passionate volunteers, you will benefit from theoretical awareness in the morning and then in the afternoon from a practical part with online driving on the CFHF network.

The morning :
– Welcome of participants, coffee break
– Presentation of the association
