Well, I took this little ride, see, to Wossname - Wolesley and saw a wossname - Waterfall and almost took a Wossname - fall. The road suddenly was not there no more.

Is that Nuwekloof pass?

It seems you were on the old road next to the railway line.  How did you get to it?  I had a look from the east side around the old station last week but could not find the way in - went down a private driveway but the owner was working on it so did not push through).

TT, from the Gouda side on the right just before the bridge you see in the pic is a little upward road of loose stones. The road ends abruptly at the fence where the road crossed the railway line. I guess they had to remove the road to make way for the electrical cables for the trains.
