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.
It appears as if the Apple Express is coming back following very successful trips in December of 2017 things seem to have turned around for the train and those who want to see run again.
