RN 298 - Spectacular documents on the Avontuur line's rich history
19th December 2006
Although the memories of the Sandstone Heritage Trust Avontuur Adventurer train in 2005 is fading from memory, the line's future remains in the balance. To support our position that this is the most spectacular Narrow Gauge railway in the world (in fact apart from being the longest and serving the highest bridge), it has a very rich history which is well documented.
One of the residents of Avontuur, Jimmy Zondach, has kindly made available this spectacular set of documents which commemorate some of the history of the line. The information is of the highest quality including the letter from the Lady in Waiting to the late Queen Mother, personal correspondence together with publicity documentation, and special front cover editions.
Our sincere thanks to Jimmy Zondach for making this information available to us.
We encourage anyone who has the interests of the Avontuur Line at heart to write in and express their support for the continued survival of this line.
