For those Thomas the Tank Engine lovers: take the steam train from Anduze (1 hour North of Montpellier) via the Bambousaraie to St Jean du Gard. A 40 minute journey that takes you through umpteen tunnels (pick an indoor carriage if you don’t want to breathe in soot!) and really into the wilds of the Cevennes mountains – take a picnic to enjoy in the banks of the Garden in St Jean du Gard.
