Apple Express

The world-renowned narrow gauge Apple Express is a journey on a heritage train with steam locomotives and timber coaches more than 100 years old on the longest operating narrow gauge line train in South Africa that is still open to the public – on track since 1903.

The train rolls through scenic countryside before crossing Van Stadens Rail Bridge – at 77.4m (254ft) it is the highest 2-ft narrow gauge railway bridge in the world and an amazing engineering feat offering an awesome view of the gorge and outstanding photographic opportunities. On the way to Loerie Station, the final day trip destination, you are treated to what considered the most the scenic part of the experience through the rolling green foothills of the Baviaanskloof Mountains.

Pack a picnic basket (or let the on-site caterer spoil you), some board games, a pack of playing cards or even your soccer ball and your camera – it’s time to make memories!

Note: no steam trains any more
