Hire the Watchmakers’ Train

La Traction has acquired an electric power car and trailer made in 1953 for the Chemins de fer du Jura.

The wooden benches of the 1950s have been completely restored and re-installed in the power car (32 seats). The trailer car has been fitted out with a beautiful modern lounge (26 seats).



In this composition, the Watchmakers’ Train runs on request. It can be hired from mars to october for group and company outings.

Are you planning a company outing, a family celebration, a seminar, a journey for a group? Don’t hesitate! The volunteers at La Traction look forward to welcoming you on board the Watchmakers’ Train.
