RN 90 - Avontuur Adventurer Update

The Avontuur Adventurer tour train reached Assegaaibos last evening after a 2-day trip from Port Elizabeth. The international guests enjoyed numerous photographic opportunities over the two days and are now looking forward to the last section from Assegaaibos to Avontuur. The first night of the tour was spent at Patensie and last night was spent at the Tsitskanna Lodge near Storms River.

Sandstone's NG15 locomotive No.17 has performed faultlessly throughout the tour and will now go into new territory where a steam train has not been seen for over a decade.

The train is expected to reach Avontuur at 16h30 and a further report will be entered onto the site shortly.
