Relive the grand age of steam engines with AJECTA at the Living Railroad Museum!

AJECTA, the Living Railway Museum, close to Provins

Rue Louis Platriez
77650 Longueville






The Youth Association for the Maintenance and Preservation of Old Trains (AJECTA) invites you to take a ride on the rails of history at the Living Railroad Museum.
You can visit an impressive train depot full of enormous engines. Its wooden roundhouse, which dates from 1911, is designated as a Historic Monument. This ingenious construction made it possible to select the right locomotive.

The museum offers a unique collection made up of 10 locomotive engines dating from 1866 to 1943. AJECTA has completely restored some of them.
A journey through time awaits you: from a Pullman luxury car from the Roaring ’20s to a third-class passenger car and a restaurant car.  And don’t forget a nice steam bath!

AJECTA regularly organises special train rides on the national rail network lines (based on availability).
Tourism, gastronomy, history and enlightening guides are always available on these railway “cruises” and other Steam Days.

Cultural highlights not to be missed (subject to change):

• Saturday 17 February: Valentine’s Day dinner: visit of the museum, followed by a romantic meal in an exceptional restaurant car!

• Saturday 18 May: Museums’ Night: discover the museum by night!
