We took the return train journey from Beekbergen. I have loved steam trains since being a child and the De Veluewsche Stoommaatschappij did not disappoint.
You can also have lunch on the train but we chose simply to have a drink and explore the different carriages, hoping on and off at various stations to admire the engine and the steam. We did book in advance and it was a busy day. Remember this is a back-in-time experience so bring cash to pay for snacks on the train - no pin facility.

Did this about a year ago. It's great fun for the whoole family. We combined the trip by train with a small trip on a boat. Took us about half a day.

A bit expensive at €30 per person for a pleasant but simple lunch, with novelty of being in an old Italian dining car being pulled by a German steam engine. We boarded the train at 1045 and finally disembarked at 1500 so a plenty of time to enjoy the train, to get off and admire the engineering of the loco. And there was time to wander around the depot at Beekbergen where there are at least 6 engines of the same design and several other steam and diesel engines. For train, nostalgia and engineering enthusiasts, a great day out!

My father used to be a volunteer at this organisation. I would really recommend to go here if you want to have a nice day out with the family. Especially if you have children. They also cater for weddings and other group events.

You can take a ride with an very old steaming train from Apeldoorn via Beekbergen, Loenen, Eerbeek to Dieren. All the people that are working there are volunteers. They are all very friendly and the ride is very nice.
