Little Yellow Train on a Monday in June

Jump to last reply

I'm planning on riding the Little Yellow Train to Latour de Carol on a Monday in late June. I'm looking for first-hand experiences from readers who have actually ridden it themselves.

I'm told it's a regular SNCF regional train. By itself, that would not indicate any sort of seat resv would be required. I'll be using a Eurail Global Pass.

But I'm also told, online, via other messages posted here and elsewhere over the past few years, that it's often booked solid. Since it's supposedly a regular, regional train, I'm not sure how it can be booked at all, per se.

Can anyone please give me precise information on how to make sure I get a seat on a particular day?

Finally, I'm thinking about splitting it into two legs, with a break midway somewhere, for lunch, potty break, etc. I wonder if, even if I had a seat on the 1st leg, I'd get shut out of a later leg, leaving later in the day, on the same route. Again, if anyone has precise, real experience, please share it with me.

Thanks.

Tom
