All passengers between the ages of 2 and 11 will receive a CHOO CHOO CLUB bag on board the train. We have a few exciting items in the bag, such as a fun activity book with games for all. Throughout its colourful pages, our adventurous gang talks about what makes each of them clever and curious travellers. The four new friends ( Benni, Luna, Oscar, and Nanuq) can also be downloaded, printed and coloured in.
Not at all! As long as they don’t organize an obstacle course race on board, they can move around a bit in our cars. Moreover, with our on-train entertainment system, there’s a good chance they’ll stay seated quietly! Book now (This link open in a new window)
