Trip on a steam train

Hermanstad departure
We went on the Cullinan Diamond Express today - a whole day of fun on a steam train.

The train departs from Hermanstad in Pretoria and it stops for lunch in Cullinan.

Cullinan is a beautiful town full of the diamond history of South Africa. They are also geared for tourists and there are wonderful shops and stalls to browse in the main street.

We had a ball of a time! Even though the train had to stop for long periods en route, we got the whole steam train choo-choo experience.

I hope that we can do it again and that the Friends of the Rail would be able to keep this going!
