As you enter the station, it seems as if you step back in time. At the platform a nearly 100 years old steam locomotive and its authentic wooden carriages are waiting for you. Smell, watch and enjoy the ambiance of days gone by, when steam trains were used to carry people and goods. Young and old will enjoy themselves in this museum. You can enter and see inside almost every engine or carriage. Feel free to ask the fireman or engine driver to show you inside the locomotive so you can see the fire in the boiler.
Come see us! Smell, watch and enjoy the golden age of steam travelling. When steam trains were used to transport people and goods over narrow gauge railways in the Netherlands. Now this is all in the past. But at Stoomtrein Katwijk Leiden you can still see how important narrow gauge railways once were.
Indoor and outdoor
There is so much to see and experience! You enter a real railway station where you can buy a real authentic train ticket. When you pass the platform you enter the outdoor museum where you will find several historic buildings. You can see antique carriages, steam and diesel locomotives. It seems as if the engine driver may return to his office at any moment: his coat is hanging on its peg and the oil lamps are waiting to be brought to the locomotive.
At our museum children can place themselves on the seat of the engine driver and put miniature trains into motion. They can play with the toy trains and go on a quest. Meanwhile the parents can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea.
