Atlantic Rail offers you an exclusive trip back in time where you can enjoy a train ride around the peninsula in a steam locomotive that was built in 1949. Not only is the train old but the coaches are vintage and the wooden bodied interiors are from somewhere between 1922 and 1938.

This Class 24 train will take you on an amazing journey starting at Cape Town Train Lodge on Old Marine Drive. There is a comfy lounge and bar area on board to make your trip as enjoyable as possible.

Travel past Newlands cricket and rugby grounds then towards Muizenburg where the views of the waves smashing the rocks below are phenomenal. Looking out at sea you may be lucky enough to spot dolphins or whales depending on the season. The rocky mountains are a sight for sore eyes and the beaches along the way are stunning.

Choo choo through quirky Kalk Bay, around to Fish Hoek, past Glencairn and into Simons Town where you can get a sneak peak of the Naval Dockyard. Once here you can get off, explore Simons Towns fascinating shops, stop in at the museum, grab some lunch or laze on the beach before heading back to Cape Town.
