Marc Bouchier of Umgeni Steam Railway [USR] treats the maintenance workers Zuki & Song to a ride on the steam train

Hillcrest is fortunate to have the historic old rail line to Pietermaritzburg running through the village.

It was largely overgrown with Invasive Alien Plants [IAP] and was a haven for criminal elements.

In 2010 Keep Hillcrest Beautiful Association [KHBA] was granted an amount by Transnet, and the IAP’s were mostly cleared.

Since 2017 Marc Bouchier of Umgeni Steam Railway has sponsored the maintenance of the rail reserve through Hillcrest, for which KHBA is grateful.

Zukisane and Songezile Nathaza are the hard workers who clear the tracks.

Marc kindly offered Zuki and Song a ride on the train from Kloof to Inchanga.
