“With our travel stories, exclusive videos and other reports of special train journeys we want to show you what makes traveling by train such a unique experience,” accordion to De Zwart.
“If you, like us, believe that the journey is more important than the destination, trains are the perfect way to travel. The peace and quiet, the comfort and the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful locations on earth that are impossible to reach with any form of transport… We love to share our passion and make it possible to have your own unforgettable train experience.”
24Trains.tv is the brainchild of De Zwart. As a boy, he used to have a Märklin model railroad in his bedroom; now you can find a complete railroad layout in his garden, based on his favorite railway company: the Rhaetian Railway, operating within the most eastern Swiss canton of Graubünden. For years now, Erik has been the chairman of a foundation called ‘Stichting Mat 54 Hondekop-vier’ which manages and operates 2 electric train units. On a regular basis, trips in the Netherlands are organised, for and with other train aficionados.
