Travel back in time with us to the historic town of Magaliesburg.  Your steam powered time machine will meet you at Johannesburg Park Station where our friendly train crew will assist you on board for an experience of a life time. With every chuff of the engine you are slowly transported back to a time long forgotten.  Where speed was not the goal of the day but rather to watch the changing landscape out the window and feel the cool breeze in your hair.  The return journey, through meandering hills, is the highlight of this journey and worth the day out.  Our engines, manned by volunteer crew, work to their utmost ability pulling the coaches through some very steep climbs and gradients, making steam music all the way. As part of the Steam Train Susan’s Centenary Celebrations, Magalies Tourism is offering 5 options for passengers on 24 August. Blackhorse, Mount Grace, Noble Village, Baboons Rest & Melon Rouge is part of the offerings. This ticket is for MelonRouge
