About

The Children’s Railway is a pedal train attraction in the Efteling amusement park.

History
The track was introduced in 1954 under the name Pedal Trains (Dutch: Traptreintjes) in the northern section of the park. The concept was developed by Peter Reijnders, who wanted to create a world where children could ride through, including a farm with corn fields, a pond, the railway station The Blue Heron (Dutch: de Blauwe Reiger) and a level crossing. The guard at this crossing is modeled after Reijnders. The original braking system in the station caused quite some accidents as it was quite abrupt.

In 2000 the ride was moved to the eastern side of the ornamental pond and renamed Children Railway (Dutch: Kinderspoor)

Ride Details:
* Ride capacity: 750 passengers/ hour
* The trains are named after bird species
* During Winter Efteling the Children’s Railway is transformed into the langlauf track the Panting Deer (Dutch: 't Hijgend Hert).
