A.S.D, Aigle-Sépey-Diablerets, 100 years of the little railway that could

The Musée des Ormonts celebrates the turbulent history of this little mountain railway line, which marked its centenary in 2014. Constructing the railway up this steep and rocky valley was a hazardous endeavour for up to 800 workers, with tunnels to bore, bridges to build and and combined road and rail crossing to complete. Regularly threatened with replacement by road traffic, the A.S.D. line is a popular tourist attraction and an indispensable transport link between the valley floor and the mountain.

Photographs, films, models and interactive exhibits transport the visitor to Les Ormonts as a passenger or even driver on the A.S.D. line. Spread over 3 floors, the exhibition is suitable for young and old, and general visitors as well as train enthusiasts.
