Atlantic Rail

About us, our history and the train

The last 10 years has seen an exceptional decline in rail traffic and infrastructure in South Africa. For many in the Garden Route region, most have never witnessed or experienced a journey on a real passenger train, never mind behind a steam locomotive!

Born and bred in Mossel Bay with a shared passion for steam locomotives & trains, the three Ekström brothers identified the need to afford the locals and holidaymakers the opportunity to experience a nostalgic train journey of a now bygone era, behind a restored steam locomotive.
After years of negotiations and discussions, they are now able to offer the Southern Cape an authentic steam train experience in the greater Mossel Bay area.
