Ceres Rail Company has announced the highly anticipated relaunch of its steam train trip from Cape Town to Simon’s Town, back after 6 years.

With this relaunch, Ceres Rail Company aims to take passengers back in time when steam locomotives ruled the rails and journeys were savoured for their grace and elegance.

The journey from Cape Town to Simon’s Town encapsulates the essence of South Africa’s rich history and breathtaking landscapes. As the train chugs along the picturesque route, passengers will be treated to panoramic views of the Cape Peninsula, including the iconic Table Mountain and the False Bay coastline.

The end destination is Simon’s Town, a historic naval village located on the eastern shores of the Cape Peninsula, and features a wealth of cultural and natural treasures. From the vibrant waterfront and charming Victorian buildings to the world-renowned Boulders Beach, home to a colony of endangered African Penguins.

Ceres Rail Company General Manager, Rick Botha, said “We are so happy to be able to bring this iconic train journey back to Simon’s Town. Our aim is to create a unique and unforgettable experience for our passengers, letting history transport them to a time gone by.
