The Friends of the Choo-Tjoe, a non-profit organisation, was formed in August 2010 with the main object being the promotion of the repair and rehabilitation of the railway line between George and Knysna and revival of the operation of the Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe steam train on this railway line situated in the Garden Route of the Western Cape of the Republic of South Africa.

The Atlantic Rail open day was a huge success ! The 24 class was steamed up for the first time in 2 years.

This event was well attended by the public the 4 coaches were full on almost every trip up and down the station platform!

I caught this photo of the Red Devil as the 24 Class was behind it, look like it's in steam ;)


There was talk of Atlantic Rail running a steam train to Simon's town once the line has been fixed, ill be sure

to have my ear on the track listening for more info regarding this.
