Everything has changed, but the steam train between Apeldoorn and Dieren has remained.
Not as a daily means of transport, but as a special attraction. On the Koningslijn, the VSM runs with a large number of steam locomotives, Dutch historical diesel locomotives and carriages through the beautiful landscape of the Veluwe and the IJssel valley and you will experience a day of rail transport from the past.
The Veluwsche Steam Train Company has set itself the goal of keeping a rolling railway museum in service. With a great deal of care, patience and knowledge, the VSM employees work on the maintenance and maintenance of locomotives, carriages and freight wagons.
Steam trains are of course always fun, but we had already seen a fantastically beautiful classic DAF bus driving a few times near the HQ of the Veluwsche Stoomtrein Maatschappij. When we saw that bus again we gave chase and arrived in Loenen justly.

That company manages a fleet of modern coaches, but the DAF is their nostalgic pride. Apparently the bus is regularly hired by the Veluwsche Steam Train Company. That is why we saw him regularly.
But it can also be rented for third parties. We think this is a stylish way to visit the Arnhem open-air Museum in groups.
On the plot behind the bus company are also some semi classics where it is apparently not going well.
