The Late Great Apple Express

These images of the late great Apple Express were taken by Ronnie Lovemore in July 2011 at the Humewood Diesel Depot in Port Elizabeth. Sadly this once busy narrow gauge line has become a memory and soon there may be nothing left to see as more of it gets vandalised or scrapped. The stations of Loerie, Thornhill and Avontuur are not much better. Special thanks to Mark Ruddy for his assistance in getting these images.
