FOTR's Train Trip Program for 2014
This timetable is subject to change without advance notice as circumstances may dictate. The intended running date and time of each train should be confirmed closer to the advertised running date. Depending on customer demand or for other technical or operational reasons, train dates and departure times may have to be changed, added or cancelled without necessarily updating this list. FOTR will however use its best efforts to keep all booked passengers informed of any changes that might occur.
Please note that due to construction work on the line, the departure time for the Cullinan Diamond Express has been advanced to 08:00 (not 08:30)

Construction work taking place. Departure time now 08:00
Passengers travelling on our Cullinan Diamond Express train must please note that major construction work is taking place on a section the line between Eerste Fabrieke and Panpoort. This can cause delays because trains cannot pass each other in this section and we may be forced to wait for those trains. This is a real safety consideration. Delays because of this, when they do occur (and only some of our trains experience such delays), are beyond our control but rest assured we do everything possible to ensure we can get moving as soon as possible. The result of this is that some journey durations have unfortunately been extended to about 3 hours instead of the 2.5 hours we advertise. We do ask for your tolerance if and when this occurs. Sit back, relax and enjoy the old-time journey. Consider it part of the experience.
Because of this and to ensure, as best we can, sufficient time for you to enjoy the village and have lunch, we have advanced the departure time of our Cullinan trains by half an hour to 08:00 instead of 08:30. Late arriving passengers are also one of the main causes of late departures whcih also causes late arrivals at Cullinan. Please be on time at Hermanstad, aiming to arrive and check-in at least 30 minutes before the advertised departure time.
