Had the train been used since the trip to Denmark for QMII's birthday party? I thought it was basically a museum piece,

Yes it has,HM used it for the opening of the Hansa railway last year.
Chances are that Willem-Alexander will make more use of it in near future.
It's sustainable,it's "green" and its fast!

He also asked the congregation to look after one another,to care for eachother,that doesn't only apply for the Royal Family but for each of you.

He mentioned how brave it is of the RF to come back to Lech again after all that happened.

You're right, Lucien, the waggon was indeed attached to this overnight-train to Landeck via Munich.

Found this video of the train with the Royal waggon next to the locomotive in YouTube:

I hope if they want to use it more often they'll invest a bit into more comfortable furniture, because it is too sober, not even on par with normal trains for long distance travel.

No,it's OK as it is to them,it's a very comfortable train really.
They never exaggerate,but somehow people seem to think that if it's not lined with gold and tralala it isn't Royal enough...grin....That's a bit too much really,the Orange Nassau's are not in all aspects the " If you got it Flaunt it" types at all. It's the posters here more then they themselves...lol....

Lech today:

I'm so glad queen Beatrix has such a good relation with her family. Lovely pics.

As for the Royal train: I really like the idea of Royals still having their own waggon which can be attached to regular trains in which to ride longer distances in Europe. It was quite common among the nobility and Royality pre-WW I to have their own railway waggon ( you can still see the one of king Ludwig II of Bavaria at Nuremberg traffic museum while the whole train of emperor Wilhelm II. is available as a model).

Lovely pictures of the family. They all look very happy and I do like the pictures of the Queen with the Cp couple, full of love between them which is nice to see.

Is Prince Constantijn and his family in Lech? If so, will they participate in the photoshoot?

Great pictures!!! There's no way you can fake such genuine warmth which we can see between the whole family!

great to see them together enjoying each other's company and having a good time! I suspect they still think of Friso every day so it is good for them to have some quality vacation time together and just to get their thoughts away from the problems for a little time!

It might sound silly but I just love the expression on Beatrix's face in these pictures. She looks serene, happy and content. Looking at her son and his family in a way that says "they're ready". Just my two cents!
