MIDDELBURG

Middelburg was on the line from Mossel Bay that connected with the main Port Elizabeth line at Rosmead -indeed it is only 10 kms from Rosmead but the main Port Elizabeth line bypasses the town. The section from Klipplaat to Rosmead is now closed to rail traffic. In better times, Middelburg had a small lever frame which was in the front area of the station building. This 1978 shot from Richard Niven's collection shows the station building in 1978 with 19B locomotive 1412.

The line has been closed for a number of years in this 2010 shot but the station building is still intact and used a party political office....
