We took our weekend foster child R. along on a trip from Simpelveld to Schin op Geul by train with the Zuid-Limburgse Stoomtrein Maatschappij (ZLSM). The main line, some 10 miles long, runs from Schin op Geul to Kerkrade. It cost about a million guilders per kilometre to construct, hence the name 'Miljoenenlijn' or Million Guilder Line (source: leaflet)
After the regular service was discontinued, volunteers took over the exploitation, using steam engines that were bought in Sweden. This is a picture of one these historic locomotives. The station at Simpelveld also houses a small railroad museum.
Upon our return in Simpelveld we made a short tour of the countryside and ended up in Landgraaf, where we visited Mondo Verde.
