Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Rain or Rainbow

The Western Cape is experiencing its worst drought and most regions have water restrictions.

We currently face a serious drought due to poor rainfall during our 2015, 2016 and 2017 winter seasons. The demand for water has also steadily increased every year due to the province’s rapidly growing population and economy. This, as well as rapid climate change, has added significant pressure on our water supply. We are in desperate need for rain!

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.
