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, 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 so click here for updates.

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.

The times shown for the trips are our scheduled times, which we try to meet on a best effort basis. Our well maintained coaches and locomotives rarely give trouble or cause breakdowns out on the open rails. However, we may be delayed on the Transnet lines depending on their traffic movements and the signalling thereof. Visit our Steam Train Trip Calendar page at
