On Sunday 3 July 2016, FOTR will have a festive Open Day at its Hermanstad Station. Starting at 10:00 am there will be all sorts of activities including music, braais (bring your own food), food stalls, and short train rides within the depot. Bring your own cooler box.

At 14:00 our vintage steam train leaves on an afternoon Tshwane Xplorer trip.
