A man accused of an arson attack on a train at Cape Town station is expected to apply for bail next week.

He was taken into custody after several carriages were gutted in a fire about two weeks ago.

 It was one of several incidents in which Metrorail infrastructure was torched or vandalised in the city, crippling train services.
 The 47-year-old man faces a charge of arson.

  He’s expected back in the Cape Town Magistrates Court on Monday.

Investigators have linked him to an incident in which 10 coaches were set alight at the Cape Town train station two weeks ago.

 Police have yet to make arrests in connection with other arson attacks and acts of vandalism. Metrorail has offered a R100,000 reward for information which could lead to further arrests.
