The Ceres Railway track, which was originally built in the 20th century, was redeveloped to help preserve and promote South African Rail Heritage.
A trip on the powerful red steam train offers visitors a unique way of experiencing the Ceres valley and its 100-year old history.
Director at Ceres Rail Derick du Toit says they've been receiving good support from visitors which has prompted them to extend their offerings.
We have now taken over Atlantic Rail and we will be reintroducing that service between Simon's Town and Cape Town as of 1 July.— Derick du Toit, Director at Ceres Rail
We are getting good support form the public and our trains are 80% full and sometimes 100% full and we continue to grow the market.— Derick du Toit, Director at Ceres Rail
