Overview

The Outeniqua Choo Tjoe was one of South Africa?s longest-lived and most famous steam passenger train services ? and now the spectacular and challenging route of the Outeniqua Choo Tjoe is available for Train Simulator!

Tracing a path between the Outeniqua Mountains to the north and the Indian Ocean to the south, the Outeniqua Choo Tjoe operated between George and Knysna in the Western Cape Province of South Africa, a distance of 67 kilometers (42 miles). The rugged line was constructed between 1924 and 1928 ? and for eight decades thereafter proved a paradise for those seeking either the scenic majesty of South Africa?s Garden Route or the magic of its Cape-gauge (3-foot, 6-inch) steam railroading.

Train Simulator?s Outeniqua Choo Tjoe route features South African Railways? Class 24 2-8-4 steam locomotive designed by SAR Chief Mechanical Engineer, M.M. Loubser and constructed by the North British Locomotive Company in 1949-1950. Weighing in at 147,000 pounds, 100 of the stylish SAR Berkshires were constructed and many remained in active service into the 1980s. And the Train Simulator route also includes a variety of authentic SAR passenger and goods rolling stock to re-create not only the iconic Outeniqua Choo Tjoe passenger train but the route?s goods and mixed trains.

The route of the Outeniqua Choo Tjoe was one of the world?s most majestic and inspiring railroads ? and the Train Simulator Outeniqua Choo Tjoe route includes all the remarkable features of the legendary line, from the towering Kaaimans River bridge to the reverse loops of Goukamma to the spectacular Knysna Estuary.

The Train Simulator Outeniqua Choo Tjoe route, from Dovetail Games Partner Programme member Johansteam, recaptures and brings to life all the extraordinary appeal of one of the globe?s most captivating steam-operated railroad lines!
