About Tubby at Blaauwater

Tubby is a little railway inspector’s cart formerly used to inspect the district’s rail tracks. Today it is used to take visitors on two-hour trips up Lootsberg. The views are lovely and there are opportunities to spot kudu and smaller antelope on the ride.

Passionate owner Charles Kingwill is the driver and narrates the old stories of the railway on his farm Blaauwater and the surrounding area. Take a picnic basket with you to enjoy at the picnic spot.

A trip up the Lootsberg mountain in Tubby is a rare experience, reminiscent of days-gone-by. Driver Charles shares not only his love for the railways and trains of yesteryear, but also his knowledge of flora and fauna. We all loved the slow-paced trip and highly recommend it - children especially will love it.
