Surrender To The Luxury Of Slow
As time meandered from the 19th Century towards the dawn of the new era, a dream was born. A dream of harnessing steam technology to link Africa’s vast south to north, around the awe-inspiring mountain ranges that dot the continent, through the apparently arid desert landscapes, over untamed savannah grasslands teeming with wildlife. It is from this dream that The Blue Train was born. Cairo was never to be, but the dreamers persevered and The Blue Train now traverses South Africa and its breath-taking scenery in a manner that befits the mystique that has grown around it.
Welcome aboard The Blue Train. Your unforgettable experience is about to begin…
Pretoria railway station is the central station in Pretoria, the executive capital of South Africa. It is located between Pretoria’s central business district and Salvokop, in a 1910 building designed by Herbert Baker. Pretoria is also the northern terminus of the luxury Blue Train service from Cape Town. Platforms and tracks for the Gautrain rapid-rail service are adjacent to the main-line station.
