Between the railway lines

The narrow gauge railway line, used by the Apple Express, leading to the west of Port Elizabeth runs through the western suburbs of the city before heading out of town.  It passes about 300 meters from my house and I decided to venture onto the line for a photo or two.


  1. I always get nostalgic when I see the rails. Does this line still operate?

  2. Nice perspective! Doesn't look much used.

  3. @Margaret: The railway line is infrequently used and the Apple Express tourist train is under threat of closure.


    The railway line has been under constant threat of ultimate closure by Transnet for a number of years now.
