    The privately run Ruhrtalbahn runs on public holidays and on Sundays from May to October between Hagen Hbf. And the Eisenbahnmuseum Bochum. The Ruhr Valley Railway operates a rail bus and a steam engine with the appropriate wagons on this route.

    Possible stations for a combined cycle / train tour to the industrial monuments are the Nachtigall colliery in Witten, the Henrichshütte in Hattingen and the railway museum in Bochum.

    A bike ride on the train is possible, with groups only with advance notice.

    Since the beginning of 2005, the (middle) Ruhr Valley Railway has been used as a railway for the regular tourist traffic on the Bochum-Dahlhausen-Hattingen (Ruhr) -Herbede-Wengern East-Hagen-Vorhalle-Hagen Hbf section, after the Railway Museum Bochum- Dahlhausen had operated a museum train service between Hattingen (Ruhr) and Wengern Ost or Oberwengern (until 1989). ,
     In the tourist driving season, however, the Ruhr valley route is mainly used by historic steam trains of the railway museum Bochum-Dahlhausen or by nostalgic railbuses.
