Maybe they are using the express way via Ulm and Stuttgart. Lech is closer to Münich then through Arlberg. But off topic, sorry :)

Thanks for the info, lucien, I've only seen pictures of Willem-Alexander, Maxima and the Three Princesses at Lech in the past; I guess I need to look harder . It must be tough for Mabel to go back to the place where Friso had his avalanche accident; I know that if I was Mabel I'd be very cautious and protective, especially around the children.

I mentioned Munich just to give an idea of the distance and travel-time towards the south.Btw,the wagon of the Royal train was connected to the Alps Express in Utrecht,so yes,they went via Munich and then direction Innsbruck and onwards.

Meanwhile in Lech,the special Holy Mass for HRH Prince Friso.

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!

The church was packed and Father Müller prayed for;"Strenght for his wife,his mother,his children and the other members of the Royal family
to cope with this heavy burden".

His prayers were both in German and in Dutch for the "very ill Prince Friso".
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?
