Valkenburg – Schin op Geul – SIMPELVELD – Kerkrade (Miljoenenlijn) & Bocholtz – Vetschau
The VSM operates a variety of steam locomotives on the old railway between Apeldoorn and Dieren. The VSM Museum Station is located in Beekbergen, where you can also find the steam depot and the locomotive shed, including the workshops. VSM has an impressive and varied fleet of rolling stock including a large collection of old steam and diesel locomotives, historical coaches and wagons. Your visit will give you a glimpse of the age of steam railways in the last century.
As you enter the station, it seems as if you have stepped back in time. At the platform a nearly 100 years old steam locomotive and its antique wooden carriages are waiting for you. The conductor blows his whistle, the fireman feeds his fire, and as the engine driver pulls the regulator, the train puts itself into motion, puffing and blowing. Don’t expect high speed, it is a slow train your grandparents will remember from their youth.
