The 3532 peak-hour train from Wellington to Cape Town was forced to discontinue its journey at Bellville Station this afternoon after a fire broke out in the drivers cabin.

Though passengers on board detected a strong "burning plastic" smell from as far back as Muldersvlei Station, it was only when the train reached Bellville, nearly half an hour later, that the driver was forced to stop.

Staff brought the fire under control quickly as a crowd gathered around the heavily smoking carriage.

No injuries were sustained during the ordeal.
