Transnet Freight Rail has confirmed that it has placed restrictions on all filming on its railway tracks due to safety reasons. The filming of trains will only be allowed if they do not adversely interfere with the company's day to day operations. Please take note that Transnet Freight Rail is not responsible for train stations as the company does not operate passenger services. Such requests have to be forwarded to the relevant passenger operating services.

These restrictions are applicable country wide.

The Gauteng Film Commission requests that all Transnet Freight Rail and Metrorail filming applications applicable for Gauteng are submitted via the GFC offices in order to ensure an efficient application process.
