It is August 5, 2011 which opened the new route of the tourist train Haute Auvergne.

 

Pour les Bortois amoureux de ce train touristique, il faut se rendre en voiture jusqu'àRiom pour monter dans les wagons.
Mais ils peuvent quand même voir passer le Gentiane Express puisque le matériel roulant reste en dehors des circulations
au dépôt de Bort les Orgues où est assuré l'entretien.

For Bortois love this tourist train, you have to go by car to Riom to get into the cars.
But they can still see pass the Gentian Express as rolling stock remains outside of traffic
the filing of Bort Organ which is serviced.

Un peu d'histoire - A little history :
Pendant 108 ans, le train et la gare de Bort ont animé l'activité de la ville. Ils ont permis l'essort
des manufactures qui trouvaient ici non seulement la force motrice de l'eau mais aussi le moyen de s'approvisionner
facilement en matières premières puis d'exporter le produit fini (soirie, confection, chapellerie, mines de charbons
de Champagnac). Le train a aussi permis a de nombreux jeunes du pays d'immigrer vers la capitale ou de gagner les ports
de la Manche pour embarquer vers le Nouveau Monde.

For 108 years, the train station and Bort facilitated the activity of the city. They allowed the essort factories that
were here not only the driving force of the water but also the means to easily obtain supplies of raw materials and
then export the finished product (SILK, clothing, headgear, coal mines champagnac). The train has also helped
many young people of the country to immigrate to the capital or win the Channel ports for shipping to the New World.
