Hope For Choo - Tjoe Steam Train

The revival of the long-awaited George to Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe train is back on track. After an absence of more than a decade, the Choo-Tjoe may soon become a familiar site between George and Knysna after it ground to a halt in 2006 when floods washed away a section of the railway line

The good news forms part of Transnet Freight Rail's (TFR) vision for rail rejuvenation in the entire Southern Cape. On 28 October 2018 Transnet will celebrate the 90th anniversary of the opening of the original George to Knysna track and their aim is to get the first services operational on this date.

According to TFR, a private sector initiative developed a proposal with a request for a concession that will see the restoration of the line. This company, whose identity is being kept under wraps, will provide all funding. Transnet will lend support in terms of cascading material and by conceding Transnet assets on this line to the concession company.
