 7 October – R650 for adults and R500 for children

At Ceres Rail Company we are passionate about bringing back the nostalgia and grandeur of vintage steam trains and we have been restoring these beautiful machines to bring enjoyment to both young and old.

One of our trains will be taking on the athletes in this amazing race of MAN VS MACHINE

Supporters of those participating in the race can be part of the race by taking the scenic option by train. But, you need to be quick as there is only 120 train tickets available. Take a step back in history.

The Steam Train Challenge promises to be a wonderful day out for both participants and spectators alike, with refreshment stations and viewing points along the route and an exciting finish area at the Ceres Golf and Eco Estate. Here, patrons will be greeted by fantastic live entertainment, refreshment and retail stalls and a fun-filled entertainment village for the kids.

Your train ticket includes your train trip, a bus trip back to Wellington, entrance to the Entertainment Village and an exclusive Wine Tasting hosted by Wellington Wines on the train.
