Voorbaai is where the short branch from Mossel Bay meets the Cape Town to Port Elizabeth line. It is also the main marshalling yard for Mossel Bay and the steam and diesel depot for the area- steam engines for the Outenikwa Tjoe Tjoe are maintained here. Until 1992, there was also semaphore signalling here, controlled by the signal cabin depicted here, which is now derelict. The signalling worked closely with that of Hartenbos, which is only a kilometer away.
