This bumper DVD features superb archive footage of steam at work in every day use before the advent of dieselisation. Much of the action shown dates back more than 40 years and captures the atmosphere of scenes now consigned to history.
A wide variety of locos are shown on both 3 6 and 2 gauges, including the mighty Garratts which were so successful in Southern Africa.
Specially featured are the rail centres of Natal and Eastern Cape lines, also including the Orange Free State, Transvaal and the Northern Cape, Swaziland and Zimbabwe.
This DVD is a must for genuine collectors of real steam.
