The “Loco Vapeur  R 1199”, non-profit organization, counts up 200 members and remains open. Thanks to its volunteers, it makes every effort to restore locomotive 141 R 1199, its tender 30 R 1199, the boiler van C 890, the diesel locomotive BB 63866 and to lay out two mail-coaches and passengers coaches.
On every Thursday, about fifteen volunteers come and work on the locomotive, the tender and the train. A second team prepar exhibitions, update the website, selecting and manage the shop’s products. Furthermore, some members deal with administration and communication.
