Karoo - Day3 Leg8 - Fauresmith Loco

We arrived in the next little town of Fauresmith, which was rather picturesque. the first thing one noticed was an old railway line that seemed to follow or go right in the high street. Plonked in the middle of town on this old line in the town square, was an old steam loco which was in a pretty good state of repair and had obviously been restored. We took a look at this then headed of for something to eat.

This is the daily blog from Africa4Adventure.com. A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011. See the plans for the trip blog here: Planning a 6 day 2500km route through the Karoo maximising dirt
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.

Nice old buildings

We climbed up into engine room and looked out

Some local kids came over for a chat and we took their picture

They were quite a friendly bunch
