Welcome to Reefsteamers

Important Information:

All Irene Steam specials are cancelled with immediate effect (from 01.05.2016 on) until future notice.
This because of serious line delays resulting from ongoing rail repairs. Unfortunately the delays are out of our hands and affect the whole train and market experience

Irene Trains will be changed to the Magaliesburg destination, this is subject to confirmation

we keep you updated, and thank you for your understanding. Your Reefsteamers Team
