Old Railway Museum

At the bottom of Market Street in Uitenhage railway enthusiasts will find the Old Railway Museum. The museum is housed in what is reputed to be one of the oldest railway stations in the country. The museum is quite quaint and has two vintage locomotives, a variety of coaches and lots of period furniture and equipment. Now if only the guy in his run down blue bakkie would leave while I wanted to take the photo, but he just sat there.


  1. A great looking railway station.

    Funny how we want our pics without "unknowns" in them. But it really can add to the character. Well, maybe not in this case.

  2. I'm not certain but I think that years ago (1971..ish) they used to have a slot-car racing club in this building. I remember going there with my friend Michael Ganner. I was well impressed, it had four lanes and was run very professionally and the club members took it all very seriously. I thought it was a church building though so maybe I'm wrong?
