This train follows the old tracks intot he mountains above the Hex Valley. Its a great shame it does not go further, but the views are amasing, and the trip takes you through old africa at the time when the British were moving armies north to fend off various attacks. Its a great history trip!

Very interesting outing! You're taken into the hills on the old rail road tracks on a tractor, of which the trailors wheels have been modified. Beautiful scenery with stops along the way for a glass of Muscadel (sweet dessert wine). Most enjoyable!
