Sadly we heard the news that the driving force behind the Apple Express and Editor of SA Rail magazine passed way. Wilfred Mole, from Sandstone Estates, posted this tribute, via her husband Hilton, to Nerina.
I am currently in the UK but I received a message to say that Nerina had passed away.
Although I have not seen her for many years, I of course dealt with her over an extensive period probably 10-years ago or more.
She was definitely a champion of the Narrow Gauge and was very committed to her cause.
Lyndie and I would like to extend our condolences to yourself and the family on her passing. I feel that she was taken from you early because I thought she was always a very youthful and vibrant person.
She will be sorely missed, not the least of all by the Narrow Gauge Railway which she did so much to keep alive.
