Cockscomb Station on the R74

Railway Stations used to be quite significant with station masters stationed there who was very proud of their workplace and kept it spick and span.  These days most of these small stations are abandoned with very little other than a sign, some signals and an abandoned, often ruined, building.  Driving up to Graaff-Reinet on the R74 from Port Elizabeth I made a quick stop at Cockscomb Station to find a Geocache and just had to snap a couple of pictures.  If it wasn't for Geocaching I would probably never have stopped here and I was better for it.

  1. Kind of a shame these old stations, and perhaps the rails as well, have been abandoned. Geocaching does get you to some interesting places.
