To travel by steam locomotive, in historic railway carriages through the landscape - you can do this between Blonay and Chamby. The museum railway offers train pleasures extraordinaire and the largest collection of operable meter gauge rolling stock in Switzerland.

The museum railway of Blonay-Chamby is owned by a cooperative that maintains the museum's own narrow gauge railway line and exhibits over 60 historic vehicles ranging from the steam tramway locomotive to the electric streetcar in two halls in Chaulin. The museum is unique especially because the steam locomotives, electric locomotives, electric railcars, tram carriages, railway carriages, freight cars and company vehicles are maintained so that they are operational at any time.

The museum train Blonay-Chamby uses the three kilometer long narrow gauge line between Blonay and Chamby, which was built in 1902. The best-known structure on the line is the 78-meter-long and 45-meter-high viaduct over the ravine of "Baye de Clarens".
