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; Also through the apparently arid desert landscapes; also over untamed savannah grasslands teeming with wildlife.  From the Cape all the way to Cairo… all of this; on parallel lines of tempered steel.
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 as well as its breathtaking scenery; in a manner that also befits the mystique that has grown around it.
