The Blue Train is a luxury train service that operates between Pretoria and Cape Town in South Africa. It is often described as one of the most luxurious journeys in the world, thanks to the quality of its accommodation and service provision.
The service itself dates back to the early 20th Century, when the Union Limited and Union Express trains carried passengers between Johannesburg and Cape Town.
The service is operted by Luxrail, which is a division of South Africa's national rail network, Transnet Freight Rail. The company currently operates two trains, which run in opposite directions along the single route, at speeds of up to 90km/hr.
