I found this little train an unpleasant addition to the Avignon experience. I suppose if you are a traveler whose is unable to walk, this train might be necessary. Otherwise it seemed like a touch that did not add anything to the Avignon vibe.

We really wanted to get on this train. We'd see it and start running toward it but it would drive away. It was hard to find where to catch this train. We really wanted to do it.
