The Apple Express, as it is generally known, runs on a narrow 610cm
track which was built at the beginning of the century. In
October, 1970, a special trip on the train was organised by the
Historic Transport Association to commemorate the 60th birthday of
SA Railways. The locomotive is a Type NG 15 and the coaches were
commissioned in 1910.
