Our new series that forms part of our regular Group Chat Live is Life Lessons with Alex. In this episode he shares his working experience  as a volunteer  coach-controller on this historic steam train that travels every weekend from Cape Town to Elgin and then back again.

Volunteering and being involved with things that you are passionate about is always such a rewarding experience. We did giggle when Alex said his favorite part of his volunteer job was sleeping on the train whilst the visitors toured the Elgin Market (typical teenager who likes to sleep a LOT).

What are you passionate about and do you have something that you want to share with us in Life Lessons? email


You are able to get off at the Elgin Market and wonder around for 2 hours then board the train for the trip back. Its a fantastic experience and great family day outing.  If you are interested to know more about The Ceres Rail Company or book a trip on the Steam Train (and meet Alex) as you board.
