From the Jura to Alsace

In the Jura, at an altitude of between 250 and 950 metres, the regional `Hirondelles' train seems to float between land and sky. Aboard the `Horlogers' train we traverse the Saugeais Republic, a principality self-proclaimed in 1947, then head for Alsace. Our adventure ends with the little Rhine tourist train.
