Tørvetoget (The peat train)
Smalsporsbanen (The narrow-track railway) is approximately 750 meters long and covers the area from Møllesøgaard, the platform at the center, to the railway stop at "Birkesø". The locomotive and the carriages, which together make up what we know as Tørvetoget, were built by the volunteers at Remisen in Dokkedal, and the train ran its first trip on 24. June 2012. The train runs with the center's guests on all weekends and holidays.
The history of Lille Vildmose Visitor Center
Lille Vildmose Visitor Center opened in 2006 after being underway for almost 10 years and in 2007 the marsh was made a protected area. This makes Lille Vildmose Denmark's largest nature conservation area. In 2016, the center was able to celebrate their 10th anniversary, and moose were imported from Norway, to reintroduce them to the marsh once again.
