Presentation

The month of August 1837 marks the arrival in the city of the first travelers by train, the interventions in the urban and natural landscape still remain minimal, since it is at the station of Pecq that the tourists disembark, the locomotives cannot not climb the hillside of Saint-Germain. Ten years later, the atmospheric train made the ascent possible and the city was equipped with a station, but also two tunnels and an open trench in the castle park. The rail then reaches the other districts, crosses and recrosses the forest and even takes possession of several streets: the Great Belt, the shuttle linking the two stations, the line passing through Achères with its marshalling station, the tramway linking the city to Poissy and in Paris, the RER A… In 2022, the opening of Tram 13 is just a new page in a 185-year history that is important to remember.
