THE STORY SO FAR

devider

In 2002, Derick du Toit had a vision to reinstate the line and together with Simon Beckett and Transnet as it’s enabler and Private Sector Participator, the line was reopened in 2012.

The Ceres Railway track was originally built at the turn of the 19th century, starting in July 1910 and was completed in May 1912. The line was built using second hand material and the engineers responsible for the building work was Mr’s Heatlie, Warren and Bromley.
