Inchanga is a colonial station (built in 1895) & is 45 minutes ride away along the old main line. The line was built in the late 1800`s and is one of the oldest active railway lines in South Africa today.


At Inchanga Station one will find the popular Inchanga Station Craft Market where many hand crafted items can be found. Numerous food outlets help to satisfy the weary traveller, including braai facilities for the 12:30 train.

 One can also join the train for the 10:30 departure from Inchanga for Kloof where one can sit down to fine pub fare and an ice cold beer at the Stokers Arms Station Restaurant, and still be in time for the 12:30 train returning to Inchanga.


From a small beginning we now carry up to 800 passengers each running day.


Picnic area with tables and chairs, food stalls and craft market, children's face painting, candle making, pony rides & model railway display, braai fires (BBQ for those visitors from far afield), are lit for the afternoon trip.



  • Your own private train?
  • Would you like to celebrate privately with your friends in style?
  • Do you want a product launch that is decidedly different?
  • Do you need to incentivise your entire company in one hit?
  • Does the thought of a confined bus trip pain you?

Then why not charter your very own vintage steam train?

Trains chartered from Umgeni Steam Railway are cheaper than you might think. You are free to provide and organise your own on board entertainment or you can let us do it for you. You can party on board, network with colleagues, mount a mini-exhibition or just chill out watching the scenery go by. You can either book a single coach or multiple coaches for your party, or the entire train.


  • Product launches
  • Personnel incentives and reward programs
  • Business meetings
  • Social club outings
  • Corporate outings and functions
  • Birthday parties - for young and old
  • Anniversaries and marriage celebrations

Using steam locos we are limited to day-light travel only.

Registered as a Section-21 non-profit making organisation our surplus funds are used for the preservation of steam locomotives & "railwayana" in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
