A busy schedule, working till just before Christmas and all kinds of other excuses led to us only being able to go on the Apple Express on the last weekend it was running in January. And it seems I placed the photos in a folder to edit and totally forgot to do so.
After nearly 8 years of inactivity, the first fase of the Apple Express' comeback took place in December with a partnership between the operator, the municipality and Transnet. The interest in the train was unbelievable and even though it only did a short trip up to the airport and back to Kings Beach, something like 6000 people went on the trip during the season. The process is on the go to get everything in place and back on track on a more permanent basis and to make this little historic steam train a more regular sight again.
