Malmesbury train.

Fisantkraal with the Cape Town to Malmesbury train. Still using the mainline coaches. They could at least build some decent facilities there. One day public transport will be as important as new roads!


4 x class 35 (GE) coming through Stickland with a coal train. Leading loco is 35-482. Note the new TFR livery in the consist.

Near Erfdeel, heading to Wesselsbron.


Hi guys.

I mentioned the decrease in traffic lately, have a look at the line between Wesselsbron and Erfdeel. Doesn't look like a train has passed over these tracks for a couple of days...

Hopefully traffic will pick up when harvest season starts. Last year the branch operated 24/7 during harvest time and we were treated to triple headed 34's on 60 truck mielie block loads - superb!! The other pic is a
load of northbound Lime at Drie Ruiters.
