Express Steam train to Magaliesburg

The Magaliesburg Express is a train journey that can take you back in time through the streets of Johannesburg to the hills of Magaliesburg.

I would recommend this trip for the whole family or a group of friends.  The train ride starts from Johannesburg Park Station, usually, if there are no changes leaves the station from Platform 4, where you will be greeted by friendly Reefsteamers volunteers who help with all the activities throughout the journey.



Once the train gets to Krugersdorp station there is a brief opportunity to get off the train and wonder around.



The main attraction is, of course, the steam engine.




Magaliesburg Station


When the train gets to Magaliesburg most passengers are taken to a nearby picnic spot called Magalies Sleepy River , which is 10 minutes drive from the Station.  There are also a few other places that passengers can also go to near the station arrangements are made prior to the journey.  After lunch passengers are then taken back to the station in time to leave at 3.00 and head back to Johannesburg and be back around 6:00 pm.

The cost for the ride is R250 with an extra cost of R60 for entrance to Magalies Sleepy River further information for dates for upcoming rides is available on their website.
