The Umgeni Stream Train

The organisation is run entirely by volunteers and is self-funding, relying almost exclusively on revenue generated from running public and charter trains to continue operating and preserving our railway history. Over the years Umgeni Steam Railway has managed to collect a sizeable array of historically significant rolling stock and other items, including approximately 10 locomotives; 50 coaches and a variety of goods wagons. Unfortunately due to ongoing financial constraints many of these irreplaceable items remain in storage awaiting preservation.

Trains run through the picturesque Valley of a Thousand Hills between Kloof and Inchanga on the last Sunday of each month, with additional trains during school holidays and for special events, such as Christmas Holiday trains in December. At Inchanga the local Conservancy hosts the Inchanga Community Craft Market whenever the Inchanga Choo Choo runs.
