Drayton Railroad Siding is a place in the southwest Cape of South Africa not far from Caledon. It is a patch of land surrounded by agricultural land that is carefully weeded allowing bulbs to grow without competition from shrubs. Since it had been burned in 2003 there was quite a nice display. The picture below taken by Bob Rutemoeller is a view shot taken September 2003.
