  • What is Makadas and why this name?

    Makadas is a steam locomotive that use to run the narrow branch line between Touwsriver and Ladismith from 1925 to 1981. The branch line was destroyed in the Laingsburg flood in '81. There are a few explanations for the name Makadas, with the most popular being that it derived from the english "make a dash". We chose the name Makadas as this is part of our heritage coming from this area, our events are hosted here and we would like you to "make a dash" when cycling through the klein karoo.
