EASTERN CAPE

The Eastern Cape main lines from Port Elizabeth and East London may have been less famous than the Cape main line or the scenic secondary lines of the Garden Route but featured a lot of scenic sections as they clambered over the South African escarpment. The region also featured a number of branch lines, many now closed. There was semaphore signalling on both main lines until the late 1990s, but this region is now devoid of semaphores and the only remaining evidence is generally one of dereliction.
