Visit the Outeniqua Transport Museum in George for a trip down memory lane and marvel at a variety of 13 steam locomotives. See the Emil Kessler, Johannesburg’s first steam locomotive, the GL Garrett with its antiquated carriages, including the original 'White Coach' in which Queen Elizabeth and her sister Princess Margaret slept in during their 1947 visit to South Africa, and Paul Kruger’s coach and private saloons.
The museum includes a photo gallery depicting breathtaking photos of South African steam trains, crockery and cutlery used on main line trains and in station restaurants, a collection of steam locomotive number plates and makers plates, a model train room, road motor vehicles and a private vintage car selection. You can also read some inspiring train-related poetry.
The museum can be booked for weddings, corporate functions, product launches and other events. A Coffee shop is also available inside the museum.
