All stations to Cape Town

All stations to Cape Town
As I said in my first post about this train station - the journey from Brackenfell to Cape Town station is an extremely monotonous one when taken every day. I pitty the poor souls who travel from Wellington to Cape Town each day.

With the exception of one or two, rush hour trains (which I guess are the ones between 06h30-08h30 and 16h00-18h00) stop at every station along the way! Each time that they stop the doors open and, at this time of the year, in blasts cold winter weather like that which we're experiencing right now.

I certainly don't miss the days of commuting on the train, but perhaps I do miss the 45 minute snooze that I sometimes managed to squeeze in on those big blue vinyl seats. :D

    On january 2009 I went to Stellenbosch retourn and to Simon’s Town retourn on Metrorail. We had great time. Some people (Capetonians) were surprised of it because they thought it as too dangerous for two ladies… No problems, no danger, first class. I will do it again with friends visit us.

    Cristina, I think we did the same route in 2008. I remember at the time feeling pretty safe. I’m glad that you have a good time!
