A little history
Rosny-sous-Bois station has a special feature: it houses a museum! Already classified as a historic monument, since its current building dates from 1912, it offers visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in the beautiful history of the railway and even - childhood dreams for many - to learn how to drive a train in a authentic reconstructed cabin. Rosny-Rail is a regional museum housed in a passenger building such as could be visited in the 1930s, posters, coal stove and scales for packages included. It is divided into a dozen spaces with the themes of the evolution of the railroad from the 19th century to the present day, railways and their signaling or rolling stock. Rail models, a signaling station and of course model trains invite you to discover the history of the train. But that's not all !
Outside the museum, draisines and a locomotive reminiscent of the transportation of officers during the Great War and that of track maintenance workers later. It is even possible to embark on an authentic draisine before taking possession of a driver's cabin to circulate on a miniature network.
