In the late 19th century, the first railway lines meandered through the Mpumalanga Lowveld, built to carry gold from Phalaborwa to Lourenço Marques in Moçambique. Further south, on the Selati Line, passenger trains arrived into Newington Station, with conductors peering up into the trees against which were long ladders which was provided by the railway company to enable travellers to climb to safety, away from the lions which prowled the area.
