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

I am a fan of trains, especially locomotives and travelling in a train pulled by a steam locomotive was like a dream come true. We took this train from Medemblik to Hoorn on a nice summer afternoon. The trains chugs along very slowly, and lets you feel the thrill of riding in a 1926 era carriage while viewing the beautiful... More

Take the old steam train and travel between two old cities in the north of Holland. A treat for the whole familiy and couples alike.

.... and especially old steam locomotives, then this is a must-do when in the area. Run by volunteers this leisurely 'company' is one of the best !
