Contact Prasa for filming permissions on all train stations and related property including the Goodhope concorse, Cape Town Station, the Stock yard etc.
Keith is a great go to guy and will direct your query relating to trains and train stations to the correct person. Metrorail itself however just don't have the capacity to let one of their commuter trains be used for film shoots because they are constantly under pressure to ensure that they meet their passenger schedules with the limited train sets they have available. I would recommend always contacting Keith though if your board has a train or train station in it.
For when you just have to have a steam train in the shot
Atlantic Rail is able to assist the filming industry when they require trains, locomotives or other equipment. We can also help you with finding the perfect scenery backdrops along the various railway lines.
