Train Layout

There are two Blue Train sets – simply referred to as Train Set 1 and Train Set 2. The former can accommodate a maximum of 52 guests and is available for use during charters. Train Set 2 is the weekly “schedule” train running between Pretoria and Cape Town. It accommodates a maximum of 80 guests and includes a paraplegic suite and a Conference Car.

Each of the two trains consist of a Baggage Van, Power Car, Personnel Car, Club and Lounge Cars, Kitchen and De Luxe and Luxury accommodation coaches.

Baggage Van

The Blue Train's Baggage Van is used as storage room for any luggage that you do not wish to cary onboard.

Power Car

The modernisation of the train in the 70s gave way to converting from steam to electricity.

Personnel Car

All our personnel reside in the Personnel Car, except for the butlers whom are assigned to a specific car.

Club Car (Smokers)

The Club Car is the ideal setting for relaxing with a fine cigar or cognac, perhaps while playing a round of backgammon.
