A good day out indeed. Steam train ride from Hoorn to Medemblik followed by a cruise on the Zuiderzee to Enkhuizen. Watching the yachts tack in the strong wind added to the experience. Thoroughly recommended.

Enjoyed the steam ride to the coast where we then took the boat on the Zuiderzee to Enkhuizen. All inclusive in the ticket.

We took a train from Amsterdam Centraal to Hoorn (about 30 mins) and arrived in time to have lunch in Hoorn before we boarded the steam train. The train journey was about 1.5 hours and passed through typical dutch countryside including some cute little villages. There was one stop where people could get off and buy drinks and icecream.

I arrived in good time for the tram ride so had a good look around the museum at Hoorn station. I was very lucky as a perfect English speaking guide had spotted my English registered motorbike: he insisted on giving me a personal guided tour to make sure that I did not miss anything. He explained that, as in the... More

We boarded the steam train from Hoorn -Medemblik return. What a lovely gracious experience. OK So the seats are wooden, not a problem, this is the way travel used to be. The views and sights are a must-a walk around Hoorn and Medemblik a pleasure. The cost is truly negligible and NOT expensive at all. Our recommendation-A MUST if in... More

Its a time-warp, with 1950s carriages and trains,transporting you to a time when train trips really had some style,like wooden bench seats, leather belts to keep windows secured in place and nattily uniformed conductors. Standing on the train balcony at the very back,furthest from the soot,noise and vibration, you will like a whistle-stop presidential candidate, as the train plods through... More

We took the boat from Enkhuizen to Medemblik, then the steam train to Hoorn and then back to Enkhuizen, another boat across the Ijsselmeer to Stavoren and then the train to Sneek before driving back to Veendam. All great fun and a full day out.

Other reviews of this attraction give a review of their overall day rather that the Museum and railway. I found it difficult to pick out a star rating because I found it a bit chalk and cheese. The museum is fascinating and the locomotives and rolling stock excellent. However the ride on the steam train less so. You sit on... More

This was brilliant. Firstly a steam train trip, then a boat trip, followed by a `modern` train trip home. All in all both a relaxing and exciting trip, which was good value for money.

We took this trip as part of an organised excursion so our coach dropped us at Medembik and we took the train to Hoorn where we were met by the coach. As we travelled on Easter Saturday there were numerous trains working and many volunteers dressed in period costume. A very interesting experience even for non train enthusiasts. Good views... More
