Model Trains Still Bay
Model Trains Still Bay / Stilbaai
Fascinated by trains? You have to experience the model trains in action in Still Bay near Riversdale along the Garden Route.
Come and observe these beautiful model trains in action. See the Old Riversdale Train Station, the Gourits River bridge, and many other famous landmarks, all built to scale.
This is a MUST for the kids (and in fact for the grown-up kids too!) to experience. Come and see hours and hours of work finally turned into a magical experience for the whole family.
Gorgeously detailed train stations, mountains, bridges and small towns form a lovely picturesque landscape for these trains to drive trough. Like they say: “seeing is believing”, so be sure to add this to your Hessequa experience!
Creating this world
Chris Benadie’s fascination with trains began when he was 10 years old, yet it has never left him. Now north of 60, he invites visitors to share his passion through glimpses of a magical world of model trains. They whistle, speed and steam over a miniature landscaped countryside of farms and villages, stations, depots and sidings, bridges and subways.
It took Chris four years to build this exhibition in two rooms in his house and it finally has been open to the public for several years now.
Share this infectious lifelong passion of Chris, in fact this might become your passion too!
Model treine Stilbaai
Wonder wat daar te siene is in die Hessequa area op die Tuinroete? As jy in Stilbaai of Jongensfontein is moet jy inderdaad nie die model treine misloop nie!
Groot of klein, oud of jonk, kom vergeet jouself in die betowering van die miniatuur landskap waar die treintjies verby heuwels en oor riviere blits.
Bekende bakens soos die ou Riversdalse treinstasie en Gouritsrivierbrug is volgens skaal te siene, sommige waarvan in werklikheid vandag nie meer te sien is nie.
