CERES RAIL TRIPS
On Wednesday 2nd June 2021, Ceres Rail Company and our partner Transnet Freight Rail relaunched the freight service on the Wolseley – Ceres – Prince Alfred Hamlet branchline. The 26 km long branchline is rated to handle loads at a maximum of 16 tons per axle.
The core freight at present is fruit, exported in Refrigerated Containers (Reefers) and frozen Fruit Concentrate. The line moves mainly containerized traffic and contributes to the migration of rail friendly traffic from road to rail.
