This is a fun way to travel. I had never been on a steam train before. What a treat! Everyone was dressed in proper attire just as if it was back in the day. There is even a brief pit stop that showcases what it was like to do deliveries. Beautiful countryside of Holland. Most enjoyable.

We rode the train and boat on a chilly November day. The line operates a full schedule during tourist season, but curtails activity during the off season. Purchased return rail tickets from Amsterdam Centraal to Enkhusen, but got off in Hoorn on the first stage of the trip as that's where the Steamtram departs. Enjoyable trip by train (steamtram) to...

Everytime we have guests from abroad, we try to take them to experience this attraction. Riding in a old steam train from Hoorn to Medemblik is enjoyable. The scenery along the small villages and in the spring time you will see the tulip fields. More interesting is the work place of the steam train self. Seeing how do the volunteer... More

We were lucky to take the train and boat tour off-season so did not have to wait and had plenty of space to ourselves. The train is beautifully restored and you can sit either first or second class. Leaving Hoorn train station you will have two stops until arriving at Medemblik. The trip takes about two hours. From Medemblik you... More

Reception at Steam trein station in Hoorn was good. If you're like steam trains theres lots to see. Steam trein trip to Medemblik great through the Dutch countryside stopping at a couple of villages. Medemblik a nice old small town with a small castle. All in all really a great day out. Good value for money.

It's possible to do a three way travel including the steam railway. We started at Enkhuizen, went by boat to Medemblik, then caught the train to Hoorn, and caught the service train back to Enkhuizen. It was a really enjoyable day out. Everything about the train trip was perfection, obviously cared for by extremely well, with polished brass and everything... More

Had a good day. Went medemblick and had lunch. Decent size town for few hours. You can get a boat if you prefer onto enkhuizen. I had a return, & look round the engine shed/yard. Parking can be a problem at hoorn so give plenty of time to get there. I parked a little distance away and got train with... More

While we took a lot of trains during a recent trip to the Netherlands, this ride was memorable for the slower pace and fields that we passed through as well as the historic value of the trip. Going in late April allowed many photo opportunities of blooming tulip fields and the activities at the stops were also fun. I would... More

Our boys got to inspect the steam trains (and add fuel to the fires) before we left Hoorn. The trains are all in superb condition and the staff take great pridw in them. The steam train ride itself was relaxing and fun. The kids loved the stop to help load goods and play with historical toys. The poffertjes on board... More
