The steam train that used to run between George and Knysna via Sedgefield and Wilderness was known as the Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe. It was the last-remaining scheduled steam-hauled train service in South Africa. The railway station is just north of town. The route included the Kaaimans River bridge (the most-photographed railway bridge in the world) and the bridge over the Knysna lagoon. The track was closed after flooding in 2006 and 2007.
