Get soot in your eyes in the 3rd class carriage plate directly behind the small engine! Watch the conductor jumping on and off to operate the road barriers. A gentle speed to see all in open countryside. Time for lunch and quick look at the harbour in Medemblik before heading off on the ferry to Zuidersee museum

Well organised excursion. The locals make use of these trains. There are three tour options, each of which is moderately priced.

A nice and relaxing way to visit the dutch countryside and at the same time make a little boattrip to the old city of Medemblik ( visit Radboud Castle?) or stroll along the old harbour of Enkhuizen and have a cool drink on one of the numerous terraces or cafe's. A bit long for the young children maybe,but you can... More

It was nice rolling through the countryside on authentic old cars being pulled by an actual museum piece. The route though is nothing special. . . as train tracks often go through the "backsides" of villages, etc. The town where you lay over before taking the boat, doesn't have much going for it really but some cafes and bakeries. It... More

We did this trip with my in-laws, and it was a huge hit! We bought the tickets for the steam train from hoorn to mademblik and also the boat ride from mademblik to enkhuizen. We thoroughly enjoyed both parts of journey. It was nicely paced tour for my in laws too. We were lucky to have a great weather, without... More

We took the train to Enkuisen and then went on the old ferry to Medemblich, where we are a picnic lunch and then took the steam train to Hoorn. The staff, mainly volunteers, were friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. The whole museum had a delightful period feel to it, and the train is a great way to see the Dutch countryside... More

This steam railway is een "blast from the past" and very enjoyable . The trip takes you along nice little villages and hamlets, you can take the boat to do an other part of the triangel Hoorn Enkhuizen Medemblik . There is enough to see and do.

This line runs from Medemblijk to Hoorn and is a must for anyone who has steam in their blood. The line crosses many roads on the journey and although some are worked automatically at many the guard alights from the train with his flag and stops the traffic because this happens often he hangs on the side of the train...

At the destination of this stoomtram we had time to grab some lunch and then hopped on the boat The "Friesland" and sailed to Enkhuizen. There we caught the regular... More
