A station on the Selati Line. The line became redundant in 1968 and at some stage the station and one of the railway coaches, attached to an old steam engine, were converted into a restaurant. Some alterations were made but the restaurant has not been much of a success and at the time that these photographs were taken (2015) it stood abandoned. Soon after leaving the station the tracks crossed the Sabi river on the railway bridge which now has the Train Hotel. The station was renovated in 2020 and now has the restaurant for the Train Hotel.
