The term Train des Pignes primarily signifies the four railways with metre gauge that once existed in southern France. Pignes is the southern French dialect word for pine cones. A group of voluntary rail enthusiasts in an association called Groupe d'Etude pour les Chemins de fer de Provence (GECP) operate a steam train (sometimes also called Train des Pignes) between Puget-Théniers and Annot on the Nice — Digne line every weekend from May to October, occasionally with an extended overnight trip to Digne-les-Bains.
