RN 274 - No more Contract Trains... It is indeed very sad27th October 2006

We were told yesterday that no special passenger trains will be allowed from 2007 onwards.
It is indeed very sad, but it was clear that the decision was taken much higher up in Spoornet and we had to accept it. At least we can look back at more than eleven years in which we were privileged to share the wonderful scenery of Southern Africa with thousands of passengers.
Even if we only received one report like Quinten's, it was worth it and one is indeed sad that this will no longer be possible. Fortunately we still have six trips left, of which three (Namibia and two Cherry Safaris) are fully booked. The others (Komatipoort weekend, Nine Provinces and Two Oceans) will most probably run to maximum capacity as well.
