A journey with the West Zealand vintage train is like experiencing a train journey from the "good old days".
West Zealand vintage train is run by unpaid volunteers who use their spare time to maintain and operate the train.
The vintage train runs on various lines on Zealand between normal services.
The vintage train will operate on the following routes during the summer of 2017:
See timetables and fares here.
The vintage train resembles a typical branch line train from 1951, although the carriages date from the 1920`s and the steam engine from 1899.
You will rattle away in one of the infamous "bone-shaker" carriages, sitting on a hard wooden bench or perhaps on of the "comfortable" leather seats! Out of the window you will see the pleasant West Zealand landscape pass by at the formidable speed of 60-70 km/h!
If you stand on one of the open carriage verandas, you can enjoy the lovely view while the wind blows through your hair. You can also follow the steam engines rhythm as it works hard up the incline.
The train includes a refreshment carriage where there also is the possibility of buying postcards and souvenirs.
