Klipheuwel is on the long branch that leave the main Cape Town-Johannesburg line at Kraaifontein and continues for a distance of almost 500 kms to Bitterfontein. There was full semaphore signalling with a frame of 20 levers which was removed in the mid-90s when this section was converted to radio operation. In this 2011 shot, you can still see where the former signalling area, now bricked off, and where the signal wires entered under the platform, in the middle of the picture.
