Franschhoek, east of Cape Town, was served by a metre gauge line until the mid 1990s when it was left dormant. The weather has been kind to it, no trees etc but grass here and there. However, some local vineyards clubbed together and set up two tram systems to move people between the vineyards. Lots of fine wines to taste and lunches to die for. One section is about three miles long the other about six. The trams are modeled on the Victorian Blackpool trams but with diesel engines fitted. These are the double deck and single deck cars.
