Rovos Rail station and trainyard

We were set to take a trip on the Rovos Rail luxury train from Pretoria to Victoria Falls.
Rohan Vos (and thus the name of the rail company) established this private rail company in South Africa that would travel on some of its own tracks and also those of the national rail company.

After arriving at Pretoria the day before the rail trip we went on a tour of the station and maintenance yard.

The waiting room - quite luxurious.
