Contact

The Blonay-Chamby Railway Museum is a living museum run entirely by volunteers. Trains run on Saturdays and Sundays, from May till October. Vintage steam engines or old electric locomotives pull carriages along the short steep 3 km line between Blonay and Chamby in a spectacular setting. At the Chaulin-Chamby depot, the museum shows visitors what is probably the best and the most representative collection of metric-gauge railway equipment in Europe.
