The Brignoles station's yard was the central point for the ATTCV 15 year anniversary celebrations on Saturday and Sunday 23rd and 24th April 2016.

The yard was used to exhibit a part of the association's set of railway vehicles collected since its creation in 1994: railcars, trailers, locomotives, passenger carriages, goods wagons, MoW vehicles ...

In addition to these rail vehicles
a few road vehicles belonging to the other associations were also on display.

Caravelle Inaugurates Line Extension Project Brignoles - Saint-Maximin

The former Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume station will become the western terminal of the Carnoules - Brignoles - Saint-Maximin tourist line
The non-profit heritage railway association ATTCV, created by a group of voluntaries in 1994, started on August 19, 2001, a tourist passenger service between Carnoules and Brignoles on the Carnoules - Gardanne railway line, using its only railcar at the time, the Picasso. Since then the association has maintained a railcar service from April to November every year. And has drastically increased its collection of railway vehicles.

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of this inauguration train, the ATTCV arranged during two days - Saturday and Sunday 23rd and 24th April - an event in and around Brignoles station.
