Do you have a specific type of train in mind for your event? We would be happy to discuss the options available.

  • high speed train
  • double-decker

We work together with the railway museum, which manages the train components. We also issue the permits to run the trains and we inspect and monitor the safety of all aboard.

Examples of charter trips with a variety of train components

  • High speed train from Amsterdam via Schiphol and Rotterdam to Breda
  • Double-decker trains transport 3,000 passengers from all over the Netherlands to Maastricht.
  • Historic 'Blokkendoos' train transports employees during a company event. Even the engineers are dressed in period-correct uniforms.
