The Port Elizabeth Apple Express has since inception in 1903 contributed much to the national heritage, family memories and milestones of South Africa's citizens.

The Van Stadens Bridge was built in 1904 and to this day remains operational for train excursion purposes. Come and enjoy a fun-filled family day whilst embraced by picturesque scenery enjoying your picnic. Experience the culture of the local inhabitants who trademark the region, and enjoy the hospitality and friendliness en route to your destination.
