Stoomtram Hoorn-Medemblik

During the Ascention day weekend, the Steammuseum here in Medemblik has her annual steamfestival and you can take a trip with one of her steamtrams. The tram rides almost the whole year but during the festival actors dressed in clothes from around 1900 are travelling with you, old timers drive next to the trams, as you can see on the pic, to make the experience complete.

When the train stops there is something to see, like these two engines, the big one is used for a harvesting machine, the small on to run a pump.

On one of the stations we saw this little engine called the Ooievaar (stork), and it is unique in the world. I must admit she was a beauty.

And after a hot day in the train; the boys had a go at a small rowing boat garndma and grandpa bought them. And amazingly only one of them fell into the water...
