Few things are more romantic and enjoyable than a steam-train ride through the countryside… And now you can hop aboard one of Ceres Rail’s family-friendly locomotives and experience the splendour firsthand.
The three-hour train ride to Elgin departs from the Royal Cape Yacht Club, near the V&A Waterfront, and travels up Sir Lowry’s Pass with a doubleheader (two locomotives). Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of mountains, endless rolling hills – and even spot a few sheep and cows along the way.
The Steampunk-style Elgin Market
Once the train pulls into the Elgin station, you will be able to disembark, and enjoy three-and-a-half hours at the newly established steampunk-themed Elgin Railway Market. With live music and a dazzling selection of clothing, accessories, ceramics and art stalls, you’ll be able to enjoy all that’s on offer while savouring tantalising street-food and refreshments.
