UNDER NEW OWNERSHIP

By the end of 2017, Atlantic Rail had to cease all operations due to the severe drought, water restrictions and sand that drifted across the tracks on the way to Simon’s Town.

Since then, Ceres Rail Company took ownership of Atlantic Rail and confirmed that tracks will be maintained and recycled water will be used to conserve precious water resources.

The first trip to Simon’s Town has been scheduled for 1 July 2018.

WELCOME TO ATLANTIC RAIL

All aboard!

If you are looking for something different to do with family, friends or even on your own, why not take a step back into a bygone era by taking a trip with Atlantic Rail.

Atlantic Rail provides a unique and one-of-a-kind experience on a refurbished vintage steam locomotive as it travels back into history. Although situated in a beautiful country, it really comes alive when sitting in this steam powered train as you overlook the ever-changing scenery.

Trains have a certain inextricable mystique – no wonder they’re often the setting for romantic rendezvous, murder mysteries and elaborate heists. Perhaps it’s the unstoppable forward momentum; the intimacy of the enclosed space or the sense of adventure and anticipation.
