One lucky reader stands the chance of winning a spectacular day trip for two aboard Ceres Rail, plus vouchers for the steampunk-themed Elgin Railway Market.

Few things are more covetable than a steam-train ride through the countryside… And with the Ceres Steam Trains (namely Jessica, Bailey and Red Devil), you get the full train experience, complete with all the travelling comforts.

This family-friendly ride – which runs every second weekend on a Saturday – departs from the Royal Cape Yacht Club near the V&A Waterfront at 8am, and takes you through the Witzenberg region, past vineyards, olive groves, majestic mountains and fields of wheat and canola to the fruitful Ceres Valley.

Once on your way, you’ll enjoy comfortable lounge cars, hot beverages and savoury snacks in the Dining Car, or beer, bubbly, wine and soft drinks in the Bar Car, before arriving at your final destination: the steampunk-themed Elgin Railway Market, where a wonderful array of stalls and a magical atmosphere await.

Does this sound like the stuff of an Agatha Christie murder mystery? It need not be – we’re giving away a pair of tickets for the Ceres Steam Train, that includes a three-and-a-half-hour pitstop at the Elgin Railway Market plus vouchers valued at R4 500!

Market highlights

  • Shelley Taylor Designs for beautiful jewellery
  • SoVinhos for wine tastings
  • JAC Crafts for rustic, upcycled wooden wineracks

  • L-Gin Craft Gin for apple and blueberry gin cocktails
  • J&J Sushi for family-sized sushi platters
  • Splashh Smoothies & Juices for large smoothie or juice and a milkshake
  • The Station Grill for a burger and chips
  • Chilli Lingo Hot Sauce Company for a fiery sauce
  • Bellicious Chocolate for a brownie and handmade marshmallows
  • Ella’s Elgin Farm Food for a wholesome farm-style vetkoek breakfast and pancakes
  • Flour + Love for two slices of homemade chocolate cake, a cup of tea, and eisbein with a cabbage salad and potato wedges
  • Pudding & Pie for six lemon meringues

All that’s left to do – once your eating, drinking and shopping is complete – is to hop back onto the locomotive, as the valley streams past your window, and delivers you back to Cape Town at 5.30pm. But for now, simply enter below, and this amazing experience could be yours.

    I get quite steamed up just imagining this trip! I am model train fan and this would be just the bees knees. I have travelled on steam trains as a youngster doing national service but my wife has never done so and would love a trip to Elgin. Growing up in Woodstock we could hear the steam engines chuffing away when the north wind blew up from the shunting yards and as kids we used to go down to watch them. Plus we are big steampunk fans as well!

    This Steam Train Trip will be reminiscent of and bring back special memories of when my wife Mary and I were just married in 1963 and my employers transferred me to Pretoria and we spent two days and nights on a steam train. On our arrival, we were covered in soot from the coal. Very different but happy days.

    I love travelling by train as it brings back super special memories. there is just no better way to relax, and experience the ride, the beautiful countryside and not having to worry about traffic, drinking and driving, and share it with somebody special. I was very surprised by this as it must be the best kept secret in town! Also, lately, one has become weary of traveling by train with all that’s going on, and I am so very pleased to know that this hasn’t kill the industry and the wonderful tradition and experience of train rides is alive and well, for me and my children. So thank you, what a great thing to do and push through on. I travel extensively and am really really super stoked about this, and to share with likeminded friends and company. I think I will have to go, and yes, not all can win, but I must make a plan to go and visit the market. If I could be the one winning the trip? WOW! 🙂

So such a treat would be better than any tonic that his Physicians could prescribe!!! To visit the market would be unbelievable and just to be pampered for a day would relieve all the stress that we have been subjected to. Fingers crossed and kind regards. Sandy Ahern

    Can’t you feel that I’m halfway there already?

    I’ve LOVED steam trains since I was a little girl, playing with our American Flyer train set. My fav loco was the one where we squelched some magic fluid into her and she then smoked…..the THRILL!

    ‘Inspired by the barn’s railway-side setting, Roger Orpen took his creative cues from the invention of steam and the industrial age, milestones accompanied by the rapid development of rail networks across the world. Creating a beautiful space where art deco meets Victorian, the Market is unlike any other in South Africa.’

    This would be an amazing prize to win! It’s mine and my husband’s wedding anniversary on Saturday, 15th September, but he has to work the entire day so sadly no celebrating this year. If I am lucky to win this prize, it would be an awesome opportunity to celebrate it on the 29th September . . . Better late than never, right? Crossing fingers & toes 😃
