Took a trip to the museum and workshop, where all the volunteers were working on restoring trains from way back to operating condition. And in the afternoon a trip with a real live steam locomotive with carriages, very nice ride through the countryside

My father used to be a volunteer at this organisation. I would really recommend to go here if you want to have a nice day out with the family. Especially if you have children. They also cater for weddings and other group events.

You can take a ride with an very old steaming train from Apeldoorn via Beekbergen, Loenen, Eerbeek to Dieren. All the people that are working there are volunteers. They are all very friendly and the ride is very nice.
