Around The World by Train. Journey #34 (of #224). Le Petit Train Jaune (down).

Latour de Carol to Perpignan by train. Le Petit Train Jaune.

To continue the Transpyreneen route to Spain, simply take the Spanish Rodalies de Catalunya R3 train from Latour de Carol (La Tor de Querol) down the mountains to Barcelona.

However, to continue this Around the World by Train journey, I will be descending the Pyrenees on the wonderful Little Yellow Train (Le Petit Train Jaune) to Villefranche-Vernet-les-Bains, from where I will continue to Perpignan.
