The Goes-Borsele Steam Train is first and foremost a travelling museum. Our museum trains offer a nostalgic train journey on our own museum railway. Check the Timetable page to find out when you can join us for a ride.
Another part of our museum is the museum depot in Goes. This museum yard breathes the railway atmosphere of long ago. The museum trains have their home here. You can visit our Traction Building (workshop) to see how our volunteers restore and maintain the trains!
You will also find the new exhibition ‘Trains of Reconstruction’ here, and in mid-2023 the exhibition ‘Safe Track’ will open. ‘Safe Track’ takes you through the development of railway safety. ‘The trains of reconstruction’ shows unique historical trains from World War II and the subsequent period of reconstruction.
On the museum grounds, you can also experience goods transport as it used to work in days gone by. Come and admire our weighing bridges, a loading gauge, old-fashioned freight wagons and a real steam crane.
Feeling peckish? Visit museum restaurant ‘Uitspanning De Goederenloods‘ for a bite to eat.
