A while ago Jonathan Hitchcock mentioned that he occasionally takes the trains to Kalk Bay for the day. I haven’t been on a South African train since I was in High School… which is really a tragedy because the line from Cape Town Station to Simons Town is quite a beautiful one.
Hence the Train Party 2008 (Mon 28th April) — We’re going from Newlands (where there is safe parking) to Kalk Bay for lunch and then probably Simons Town. I’ve created a facebook event, but in case you’re unable or unwilling to do “the facebook” thing and want to come I would suggest you leave a comment here so I have a rough idea of how many people are coming.
All are welcome so invite your friends!
If it’s a great success I will do it again next year.
