Long Description:
La locomotive Mallet est un vestige de l’ancien réseau ferré breton
- construite en 1913 à Lyon
- masse : 40 tonnes
- puissance : 540 chevaux
- vitesse : 45 km/h
- distance parcourue : 963 117 km
- fin de service en 1967
- classée aux Monuments Historiques en 1985

Elle est placée sous un bel auvent d’acier de style Art Déco. "Si aujourd'hui elle s'expose fièrement devant vous, ce n'a pas toujours été le cas pour cette locomotive à vapeur datant de 1913. Ce n'est qu'à l'été 2018 que La "Loco-Mallet" a fait son retour place de la gare après plus de 1000 heures de travaux de rénovation. Vous vous doutez bien qu'en 100 ans d'existence la rouille a eu le temps de faire son apparition et de trouer la carcasse sur plusieurs endroits. Cette réhabilitation importante a été menée par Philippe Gaillard, patron de l'entreprise carhaisienne Ahès Sablage accompagné d'un seul ferronnier. Construite par l'entreprise Piguet, ce symbole du Réseau de Chemins de Fer Breton est classé Monument Historique depuis 1985. En attendant qu'une statue de cheminot breton s'installe à son chevet, vous pouvez entendre un appel à monter dans le train accompagné d'une fausse fumée à chaque demie et trois-quart d'heure entre 09h30 et 19h45."
