Pétange - Fond-de-Gras - Rodange

In the hills between Rodange en Pétange there was for years a railway into the iron ore loading stations. This was a line, only for goods transport. It ran from Pétange via Fond-de-Gras to the French border.

Today the iron ore loading has gone. The railway has been out of service for a while, and for some years, today on some days (sundays in the summer) a museum train can be found riding from Fond-de-Gras to Bois-de-Rodange (in the hills above the village of Rodange), and (since the year 2001) also from Pétange to Fond-de Gras.

More about this train can be read on the website of the train 1900.

Fond-de-Gras - Lasauvage   (mineursbahn)

In an old mine between Fond-de-Gras and Lasauvage, you can find a mine train of the AMTF (Association des Musée et Tourisme Ferroviaires). It is riding from Fond-de-Gras (at the site of the museum line Train 1900), for about a kilometer into the hills, and then going over a length of about 4 kilometer in a tunnel to France. In France the line runs in open air for some kilometer to Saulnes. At the museum line there can be found several types of rolling stock of the old mine trains (e.g. e-locs, diesellocs, lorries).

More info can be found on the Train1900, the official website of the AMTF
