Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Any Tracks and Trains

A scenic day trip along Cape Town’s Atlantic coast


You can take a journey down memory lane aboard the Class 24 steam locomotive, built in 1949 that has vintage wooden coaches dating back to 1922 and 1938; the train comes complete with a lounge car and a full cash bar service.

The 5 ½-hour return trip winds its way along the coast of False Bay, through villages  up the  mountain slopes and along the Cape Peninsula’s beautiful beaches.img_4840-2

The train departs from Cape Town station at 10:30am and travels between the famous Newlands rugby and cricket grounds to Muizenburg, on to False Bay for a  close-up of the ocean, above the rocks of Kalk Bay, through Fish Hoek and Glencairn, and finally, the journey comes to an end in Simon’s Town, with a view of the naval dockyard.img_4839-2

Passengers are free to spend the day perusing the town as they will: grab a bite, lounge on the beach or stroll through the town. The train departs for Cape Town, along the same route, at 3pm.
