RN 184 - Children experience a steam ride for the first time

14th June 2006

Can you remember the first time you ever set eyes on a steam locomotive? This is exactly what the 230 children from Maleleng Primary School experienced. The children were taken for a walk around the steam shed to view Sandstone's vast collection of steam locos. Once all the children were treated to some refreshments they were taken for a ride down to Grootdraai. One could hear the laughter and shrieks of delight from the children as they pulled out of the steam shed.
