About Us

Welcome to Ceres Rail Company!

We offer a passenger rail experience to various destinations in the Western Cape, departing from the train platform at Harbour Bridge Hotel in Cape Town. We offer day and longer overnight train trips (differing offerings at various times).

Most of our coaches are around 70 years old. They are all lovingly maintained by an enthusiastic crew, who keep them looking as good as new for your comfort. Our coaches are serviced and maintained at our Ceres depot. We create work for the residents of Ceres, offering contracts for various tasks. We have various coaches each with their own unique seating experience.

We have two Class 19D locomotives #3321 and 3322, (these were manufactured in 1948 in the UK and 235 were placed in service between 1937 and 1949 in South Africa), a Class 19B locomotive #1412, and the very famous, one of a kind South African refurbished in (1981) Class 26, fondly known as the Red Devil. We are also fortunate to have a privately owned Class 24 at our disposal.
