On Saturday 2 December 2017, the seniors of Groot-Brakrivier went by train on the Diaz Express from Groot-Brakrivier Station to Maalgate.

They gathered at the station at 12:30 for a scenic half-hour ride to Maalgate. On arrival all disembarked and were handed a burger, cooldrink and fruit, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Everyone had time to stretch and explore the surroundings; contented just being out in nature. The seniors left Maalgate at around 14:15 back to Groot-Brakrivier, after an outing well spent.
