I continue to be fascinated by the now-closed (1951) coastal metre-gauge line from Toulon to Fréjus. It’s a real shame that one can only now imagine the atmosphere and spectacular sea views from that train. After calling at La Croix (the little town is now called La Croix Valmer) the train would plunge into a tunnel, one of several on the line, on its way towards Fréjus.
