Tourist train, La Chaux-de-Fonds

"On a beautiful day in late summer, we decided to play tourists in our region. So we went to La Chaux-de-Fonds to take the little tourist train around the town. Full steam ahead! We set off up a sloping street, did a loop around a church, went back down the main street, then climbed to the north of the town, climbed and climbed and passed – Oh! What a surprise – the Bois du Petit Château, where we return to explore our childhood memories. We reached the top of the town and as we started our descent, we realised how beautiful, airy, colourful, ordered and alive this town is, full of trees and set like a diamond in a cradle of mountains."
