Important information for our visitors: Our steam engine is over 95 years old. Since it is a delicate piece of machinery, breakdowns may occur. At times it may not be possible to repair the engine until the next day. On these occasions service is provided by a historical diesel locomotive. We also do this in very dry weather conditions.
