About this website
Welcome aboard! My name is Mark Wichers and I am an enthusiastic lover of trains. In 1961 my parents, sisters and I moved to East Croydon (south of London). It was there that I was first introduced to steam trains, which raced past with great noise every hour under the train viaduct right next to our house. When I received a model railroad starter set on my birthday, I was hooked.
I've been retired for a few years now, but trains have always played a big role in my career. It was almost inevitable that I ended up in the travel trade.
I started in 1988 with my own travel agency in The Hague, specialized in special train travel, co-creator and organizer of the 40-day train trip around the world project.
Since 2007 I was employed by one of the leading train tour operators in The Netherlands, responsible for compiling and executing Luxury and Long Distance Travel.
I would like to let you benefit from my more than 30 years of expertise in putting together special train journeys!
