    Default Cape Town Steam

    Atlantic Rail run a popular semi-regular steam train between Cape Town and Simon's Town. Jenny is a Class 24 steam locomotive - # 3655 - built in 1949. She hauls a set of wooden bodied vintage coaches dating from 1922 to 1938 from Cape Town to Simon's Town and back roughly every other Sunday and on some public holidays, hugging the False Bay coastline for a significant part of the journey. Seats are snapped up fast and one needs to book weeks - even months - in advance. Details at

    Here is a short clip of Jenny during shunting operations after her trip on Sun 30 Mar 2014:

    and here is one of her arriving in Simon's Town earlier in the day:
