The Simon van der Stel  GOLD  CERTIFICATE Presented to  REEFSTEAMERS

Reefsteamers preserves and rebuilds old steam locomotives and their operations have an impact on rail heritage nationally. In the face of obstacles such as lack of funds, supporting services and infrastructure, volunteers are united by a passion to preserve the giant heritage trains and keep the spirit of the age of travel alive, dedicating their free time to restoration projects.  Public tours and day trips provide a unique heritage-tourism experience, thus raising public awareness of heritage conservation. In recognition of its considerable role, over decades, in the conservation and restoration of our heritage, Reefsteamers is awarded The Simon van der Stel  GOLD CERTIFICATE.
