We've had some very special people here, André Swiegers has entertained us a number of times and Riana Nel made her "Dans" CD here and then we also give up-and-coming stars a chance to shine and entertain here.
Recently we had Lizz Meiring here and also Anton Goosen. Also for Christmas one year we had a Brass band playing Christmas Carols. Appel has entertained us here and it was an awesome show.
We'll keep you posted for the next event on the Facebook Page.
Guests have asked for some history so here goes.
The Station was opened in the 1940's and the Station master in that time was here some years ago and told me that Leopards would chase down Impalas in front of the building. There was no road of course. Goods and passengers would arrive on Ox wagons in those years. The buildings were sink and only in the early 1970's the Goods shed and other buildings we see now, were built.
We have customers from all over the World, for example a customer from London once had his motorbike serviced in London and the owner of the shop asked him where he got the Beestekraal Stasie sticker on the bike from, as the bike owner and the shop owner had both been here.
A local guy once did business in Hong Kong and on that weekend there was a SA Rugby game going on and he joined a group near a TV in a Pub in Hong Kong. The group were from London. He says they were all talking about Beestekraal Stasie because all of them had been here.
I will post more stories as I remember them. Hope you enjoyed this.
