Fantastic experience with a steam engine pulling well maintained coaches over a ride of about 30 minutes each way.The original station at Simpelveld contains a large restaurant and big souvenir shop.Such a nostalgic event.

South Limburg Steam Train Company (ZLSM), also known as the ‘Miljoenenlijn’ because of the cost of restoring it to use as a heritage line. This is a small heritage railway line being stocked by only one steam locomotive but there is also a three unit diesel railcar in use. Despite that, they actually run trains to and from Sempelveld to three other destinations including a short line over the border into Germany. We hadn’t realised – initially – that our tickets were day tickets that gave us access to the two short routes served by the diesel railcar as well as the steam-hauled route to Schin op Geul. We missed out on a short trip to Kerkrade but did enjoy both the steam hauled trip to Schin op Geul and the Diesel railcar trip to Vetschau. On the former, we were treated to waitress served drinks from the buffet car and on the latter we were given a very good running commentary from the Driver as well as short stop to take photographs of the Atlantic wall that divided Germany from Holland. We started our visit with basic but well prepared and served snack lunches and finished with refreshments; both taken at the restaurant at Sempelford Station. Not as large as many heritage railways, but we felt that it was well worth the €15.50 each.

We prebooked tickets online for 15 euros per person which I thought was quite steep. We arrived to complete chaos, sooooo many people on the train. We could not sit together and the trip was only 20 minutes. The online time table is incorrect. In Schin op Geul you wait for half an hour and then back again for 20 minutes. We had left too late so the kids were all totally fed up and not up for any of the other options. 5 euros would have been ok but 15 euros is really way too expensive. No one explained anything about the train, no story, nothing about the steam train, nothing about the history. Totally disappointing for my daughter's 6th birthday. Maybe better out of season but I won't try again. We took 11 people of our family so spend a lot of money.

A trip into the past. The staff play their role very well. Giving you the complete experience. We took the steam train and sat in a private cabin with 4 people. Handy if you have one or two energetic kids 😉
