Our history

The club was started in 1986 by a group of local Pretoria-based railway enthusiasts, who were Railway Society of Southern Africa members. The problems of traveling to Johannesburg to attend the RSSA meetings and events, and the steam activities still happening in the Pretoria area prompted the formation of the Association.

Our current status

We are an established section 21 Association, run by a Board of Directors and a group of willing members who tackle jobs, both large and small, to keep our heritage trains running. Friends of the Rail is preserving railway heritage for the enjoyment of future generations.

If you would like to know more about our activities, you can give us a call or send us an e-mail.

If you have a social group looking for a day out, we can organize the hire of a private train, or private hire of coaches on one of our regular trains, at special discount prices - we can even arrange catering and other useful facilities at a variety of different destinations.

Joining our Association

There is always lots of fun to be had and future generations will have you to thank for helping in the preservation effort. Join our Association and play a part in keeping the dream alive.
