All Aboard The Elgin Railway Steam Train

Take a ride in this revamped but authentic steam train and stroll about the Elgin Railway Market

If you’d like to spend a day in the 1800s, while still enjoying some modern-day delights, then hop on board the steam train to the Elgin Railway Market on Saturday 12 or Sunday 13 January 2019 and every Saturday thereafter.

WHAT TO EXPECT
The Ceres Rail Company's revived and restored steam train departs Cape Town from the Royal Cape Yacht Club in the Cape Town harbour at 8am. It arrives at 11am at the newly established Art Deco and Art Nouveau-inspired Elgin Railway Market

Spend 3.5 hours browsing, perusing and tasting a delectable selection of eats and drinks at the market to the sounds of live music. There's a play area and a climbing wall for kids, making it great for families. Depart from Elgin at 2:30pm and enjoy the relaxing train journey back to Cape Town where you’ll arrive at about 5:30pm.



TICKETS TO THE CERES RAIL COMPANY AND ELGIN RAILWAY MARKET

Check the schedule and book your train ride online at Ceres Rail Company. Train tickets cost R750 per adult and R500 per child, while infants under two years of age ride for free. Goods at the market are priced individually and you can also drive to the market if you miss the train. For more information, contact the organisers directly on bookings@ceresrail.co.za or 079 077 5332.
