Notes : 
(1) This was a special train from Berlin to Amsterdam and return. The N.V.B.S. (Dutch Association for Railway Enthusiasts) were celebrating their 60th Anniversary in Amsterdam, with a very impressive Steam Cavalcade at Amsterdam Westhaven on 05/10/91, and various special trains around the Amsterdam area over this weekend.
(2) It is reported that 18 201 broke the Dutch Steam Speed Record at 128kph on this train, between Amersfoort and Apeldoorn.
(3) Route confirmation required - above is from booked timings.
