Looking for a unique way to travel down the scenic, historic route from Cape Town to Simon's Town? Look no further than the antique steam train. Atlantic Rail is a private nonprofit and operates most weekends (see the full schedule online) down the same tracks as the MetroRail. Once in Simon's Town, you'll have time to explore and dine before returning to Cape Town. It's very popular with families so book your seats well in advance. For a fun and unique party idea, you can also charter the train for private trips.
