During March 2017, Heidelberg Tourism and Ceres Rail had the opportunity to offer 80 tourists and stream train aficionados the opportunity to travel to Heidelberg and spend two separate nights in town.
Heidelberg Tourism and Ceres Rail cleaned the train station, and then an unexpected bonus, a farmer in the area spent two weeks repairing, painting and cleaning the train station as well.
A lot of the town waiting anxiously for the train to arrive. - What a party!
Once the guests arrived, they were of cause treated to typical Heidelberg hospitality - all 80 of them ( and the train crew of 16+) had an excellent dinner and then off to bed.
The next morning, after breakfast they departed, but not for long, as the next afternoon they WERE BACK ... !
Everyone gathered in our beautiful town hall, watched a show by Win Voster and the kids of Heidelberg Drama school, had a cheese and wine with the Starnation Art exhibition, and then had dinner again.
Old and new friends had a chance to visit with each other again.
