The Ceres Rail Company is offering you a magnificent return trip to the Elgin Railway Market aboard their historic passenger train. 


  • 07h00 – 07h30: Passengers Arrive
  • 07h15: Train arrives at the platform
  • 07h15 – 07h55: Passenger boarding
  • 08h00: Departure
  • Once aboard you will enjoy a 3-hour rail experience to Elgin, traveling through the beautiful Cape, up the majestic Sir Lowrys Pass, and then down into the Elgin Valley.
  • 11h45: Arrival at the fabulous Art Deco & Art Nouveau inspired Elgin Railway Market where you will spend a few hours at your leisure. 
  • This time may change due to delays on the rail network with regards to crossing other trains, infrastructure maintenance, and other safety checks. Delays in excess of 30 – 60 minutes are not uncommon and should be planned for.
  • At the market, whilst enjoying the live music, you can wander through the many stalls offering delicious food, a wide selection of local wines, ciders and gin. Various bespoke craft stalls selling a wide range of goods including jewellery, leather goods, wire art, etc are also on site.
  • 13h30: Train opens for reboarding (passengers to board at their leisure). 
  • 14h15: Departure from Elgin Railway Market
  • Depending on the time of arrival at the market, a decision may be made to delay departure to ensure passengers have enough time at the destination. This will be communicated to passengers by the staff onboard.
  • 18h00 – 19h00: Arrival back in Cape Town.
  • Passengers are advised not to arrange evening events after the train at a time too close to the arrival of the train back in Cape Town due to possible delays in arrival.
  • NOTE – The departure time from Elgin Railway Market is heavily dependent on the time of arrival. If lengthy delays are experienced on the way to the market, the departure time from the market will be modified. We have experienced delays en-route of up to 2.5 hours in some recent trips.


Located within a converted old apple warehouse lies the bustling Art Deco Market that is The Elgin Railway Market. Decorated in a Steampunk style, The Elgin Railway Market boasts local food and craft vendors and live music. If you are lucky, you will get the chance to greet another train arriving at the market, where you will be able to witness the train in all its whistling glory from the station platform or from the Market’s leisure deck overlooking the railway platform.

Your journey begins at the Harbour Bridge Platform and winds through Cape Town and its surrounds until it reaches Sir Lowrys Pass. Arriving at the foot of the pass, the train embarks on an epic climb up one of the steepest railway lines in South Africa. Cresting the peak, the train snakes its way into the Elgin Valley before arriving at the Elgin Railway Market. 

  • The train is usually hauled by a heritage steam locomotive and a diesel, but at times, due to the fire risk and other events beyond our control, the trip may be hauled by 2 diesel locomotives. 
  • There is a cash bar on board as well as a dining car providing coffee and snacks. Various books and memorabilia are also available for purchase on board.
