|Sandstone packages for active participants, their family and travelling companions
The Stars of Sandstone festival welcomes international visitors who wish to actively participate at Sandstone on the railway as well as other
vintage vehicles, traction engines and other heritage assets. If you would like to get involved and feel that you may have the required
qualifications and experience, you are welcome to make your interests known to the Sandstone team.
All participants must pay the Sandstone entry fee. You will also have to arrange accommodation, transport from Johannesburg airport and daily
transfers between your accommodation and Sandstone if required. You can arrange these yourself or use the special package managed by
Geoff’s Trains. The suggested accommodation is a guest house at the nearby town of Ficksburg, offering pleasant bed and breakfast rooms
for participants, family and friends.
Geoff’s Trains will provide a coach transfer between Johannesburg’s OR Tambo airport and your accommodation at Sandstone or Ficksburg,
leaving OR Tambo airport at 12h00 on 31 March, 01, 03 and 08 April 2019. Coaches will return to Johannesburg on 08, 12 and 15 April, during
your stay they will run a transfer service between Ficksburg and Sandstone, with a service to Sandstone timed to satisfy the early morning crew,
another just before sunrise and a third after breakfast, arriving at Sandstone in time for the start of the festival at 10h00. In the afternoon, return
trips will run before and after dinner.
