Good guesses, but I want it more precise than that. Can you give a Google Maps satellite image link for the exact location?

We have a winner! The position you gave is just next to the fifth car of the train. We are on the Île-Ste-Lucie, in the middle of a bay closed off from the Mediterranean, the Étang de Bages, between Narbonne and Port-la-Nouvelle.

Hurray... I knew my mini-marklin Z set would lead me to some great things in the future :-)

And for the sake of it, the location of the barge in Paris...!

But you gave a good hint about the water body, as It, then, couldn't be the sea... Those were mediterranean trees and landscape, there was no roads, nor canal... Just one location on the Southern coast of France from Italy to Spain (viaMichelin)...
Nice game :-)
