Steam train rides


Come share the romance and the fun of a steam train ride with us! Relax while we take you out for the day on a leisurely run, perhaps to a restaurant, our exciting new picnic area, or simply a round trip into the scenic countryside. Reefsteamers is a volunteer group of steam enthusiasts who love steam engines, working on them, restoring them and of course, running them. We are based in the extensive old Steam Locomotive Sheds in Germiston - centrally placed to the rail network of Johannesburg. We earn money to support our club by running day trips for the South African Public and longer tours for local and overseas Steam Engine enthusiasts.

Our day trips spots are the Magaliesburg region and at Irene (Centurion) where there's much to see and do.
There are other trips and venues too - but you need to check our website for updates: http://www.reefsteamers.com/Timetable.html

There's plenty of room for the kids on the train. We sell tuck, nibbles and cool drinks. There is a bar car too. The coaches all have electrical power, toilets and running water on board.

The steam train is hauled by one of our beautiful full-sized ex-South African Railway locomotives, of which we own eight. We show two of them in our photos below. For the railways minded, they are a Class 15CA (centre) and a Class 15F (right). Our trains are full lengthed from 10-15 coaches and run at proper main line speeds. These aren't toys but the real thing! Kids (and the not-so- kids) can get up close to the locomotives and even right up in the locomotive's cab, where our friendly staff and crews will happily talk about the locomotives which we love so much. We run on a professional basis and abide by all Spoornet regulations and safety rules. Before each trip, our locomotives and coaches are checked for safety by ex-Spoornet personnel, and for mechanical road worthiness by senior engineers. We may be volunteers, but we are not amateurs.

We went on the Magalies Express on 21 Mar 2015. Due to (apparently)a sequence of Transnet issues, the train was delayed for 1hr 25 min on departure and a further 1hr 15 min on return. Waiting in the depths of Park Station with the smell of urine burning our nostrils for all that time, plus 3 kids under the age of 5 years - not fun. Driving home through town at 8pm (instead of the scheduled 5:30) with small kids in the car - not fun. Plus a whole bunch of other issues. But what really upset me was the snotty and sarcastic reply that I received from Reefsteamers. I would recommend this experience for the avid, passionates; but not for those with young kids.
