Here’s something different for Easter Sunday or Monday.

Many of us enjoy a trip behind the monthly steam hauled trains on Umgeni Steam Railway but both steam locomotives are in the shop for repairs.

This Easter the trains will be hauled by a vintage Diesel-Electric Loco which is actually more of an event than the steamers.

On Easter Sunday 27th March running out of Kloof to Inchanga at 08:30 and again at 12:30 and rumoured to have The Easter Bunny aboard with an inexhaustible supply of Easter Eggs for children, this is a great opportunity for something entertainingly different.

On Easter Monday 28th March the trains leave at the same times of 08:30 and 12:30 but by then the exhausted Easter bunny will have retired for another year.

Bookings which cost R200 for adults and R140 for children and pensioners, can be made via email to:

Inchanga Conservancy Craft Market will be in operation at Inchanga station on both days.
