Mini steam trains

Choo choo! Take a ride on the mini steam trains in Schutterspark! Across the steel suspension bridge, through the coal mine tunnel, on Sunday afternoons when the weather is nice, take a fun ride here. Train enthusiasts take note: do you have an LGB or Playmobil train? Bring it along and let it ride on the high 1 track rail (bring your batteries). The dream of every child and train enthusiast!


Miniature steam trains depart from the station next to the event site in Schutterspark. Smell the steam, ride through the coal mine tunnel and across the steel suspension bridge between the rhododendrons and trees of Schutterspark over the 600-metre-long railway track. The volunteers from Stoomgroep Limburg are happy to take you for a ride. Or show you how a steam engine works.

Running your own train

Are you a real train enthusiast and do you own a Playmobil or LGB train? You can run your own train on the 60-metre-long Spoor 1 track on stilts. Don’t forget to bring your battery or batteries!

Open days and themed rides

Every year during the last weekend of June, the Steam Group organises an open day (the Steam Days). Small-scale steam and electric trains, steam tractors and stationary models. You can see them all at the exhibition. The volunteers will passionately tell you all about it. More information can be found at Around the holidays, there are special theme rides, such as the Sinterklaas ride, Christmas ride and Halloween ride. Check the agenda on their facebook page.


Check on-site at the box office for current prices. A single ride costs €0.50 and for €4.50 you have a 10-ride pass!

Opening hours

Opening hours depend on the availability of volunteers. So always check the facebook page first to see if the trains are running!

In good (dry) weather, regularly on Sunday afternoons from +/- 13:00 to 16:00 hours.

My favourite spot

“The benches at the water’s edge near the ponds.

Looking at

the ripples,

I find complete relaxation.”
