Great success

The first dining trip was on Saturday 9th April 2016 and it was a tasteful success that made it even to the Tubantia newspaper with a long article (dutch)! Check the atmospheric impression on Facebook. A journey report (dutch) has been written by one of the guests.

A day about which people will be talking afterwards? An event that your guests have never yet experienced? Then our museum could just meet your demands!


Goods shed

Parcels, crates, boxes, bales, sacks, barrels and baskets used to be unloaded from goods wagons into the shed after which they were loaded at the road side into road vehicles for furher transport. The former goods shed is now in use as station buffet (Restauratie) and most suitable to be hired for a company outing, meeting or event. Sound and vision euipment is available in-house and we may offer a complete restaurant and bar arrangement.


Hire your own train

Many people hardly realise that we have our trains also running for parties, to their own special timetable. We would appreciate to help you thinking about the best way to prepare a unique trip, day or presentation. Almost everything is possible, from a coffee with cake to a complete 4-course dinner.
All being served in a running steam train!
