Steaming Under African Skies

Steaming Under African Skies

The "Under African Skies" event was a hands-on experience for steam enthusiasts from all over the world. All of the working Sandstone narrow gauge steam fleet was operational at one time or another allowing enthusiasts to enjoy a variety of engines on the spectacular Sandstone Estate system. Up to nine locomotives could be seen operating at any time! Enthusiasts had to prepare their engine themselves and were provided with a suitable load for the experience. Photographers, in fact, had a special time as many of the preserved motor vehicles were used to “accessories” the rail photographs making for that unique Sandstone touch. Under African Skies ended one day before the Cosmos Festival and to cap-off the previous two weeks proceedings a world record attempt for the longest steam hauled 2ft narrow gauge train was successfully run.  With four locomotives (three of them Garratt), 48 wagons and an estimated load of 475 tons this was certainly another one fo..

Sandstone Narrow Gauge Railway is South Africa newest and boldest steam preservation project, you will be amazed! Over the past five years, narrow gauge railway preservation in South Africa has been gaining new ground: fourteen kilometres of two-foot gauge track on one of the country’s biggest and most aesthetic commercial farms – Sandstone Estates. With the Great Maluti Mountains presiding, and their rugged foothills giving narrow gauge engineering the topography it likes best, the Sandstone Narrow Gauge Railway is Africa’s newest and boldest steam preservation project. In this video, we explore the history of the railway and its stable of locomotives: we join the Sandstone drive to locate and give sanctuary to precious railway relics; and we witness the transformation from scrap metal into gleaming, fully restored engines hauling payloads on a working commercial farm. With its combination of spectacular mountain backdrop, pristine rural environment and b..

Reefsteamers Great Trek

Reefsteamers Great Trek

When steam traction made way for other means of transportation, the parting was sweet sorrow for those who remember its finest moments. The steam locomotive was too grand a machine to disappear into oblivion. A wave of steam enthusiasm swept the world and South Africa was not an exception. Reefsteamers are a group of amateur volunteers that are dedicated steam preservationists. A team of enginemen reports on duty to light up the engines and make sure that the right pressure has been generated before the departure. The locomotive has been oiled, greased and polished. With the tender filled by coal and water, the locomotive is ready for the right away signal. A steam whistle breaks the silence. The train starts to move and veritable billows of smoke shoot rhythmically from the chimneys high into the sky. The golden fields speed by, bridges whip overhead and railway crossings sing their warning songs. The train is leaving Johannesburg for the wide-open spaces of Africa.  All ab..

Railway Panorama Number 4

Featuring ALCo's at work. The first main line diesel electric locomotives used in New South Wales, Australia, were designed by the American Locomotive Co., built by the Montreal Locomotive Works of Canada and powered by Alco diesel engines. These entered service from 1951 as the 40 class, and began the demise of steam locos in NSW. All later classes were built in Australia, and of the subsequent loco classes 40 to 49, the following were Alco powered:- 40, 43, 44, 45 & 48. Subsequent Alco powered classes were:- 442, and 80. This video looks at all the Alco powered locos, generally in the order in which they were introduced, however, as the majority of the locos remain in service (at the time of filming), with only the 40 and 43 classes being totally withdrawn, later scenes show all remaining classes at work. There are nostalgic scenes of the midday Newcastle Flyer with a 40 class, a pair of 44s on the Spirit Of Progress, a 48 on end-platform wooden suburban cars, a good..

Rail Victoria - The Changing 80s

The 1980s brought many changes to the rail system of Victoria. In conjunction with the name change of 1983, there was a change in corporate colours for locomotives and passenger rolling stock. Through running of locomotives from South Australia and New South Wales was implemented. The removal of the Guards Van from freight trains brought about a reduction in Train Crew manning from three to two. This practice was later extended to include all passenger services. The 1980s saw changes to the rail industry of Victoria which could never be envisaged by the forefathers of years past. This 2 disc set covers only part of those turbulent years. Locomotives in the ‘Blue & Gold’ mix with colour schemes of V/Line, South Australia and New South Wales, it is all here! Truly a trip down memory lane. Digitally remastered and re-edited for DVD-R 2005. Originally sourced from VIDEO 8 and mastered to Betacam SP. (Includes a bonus disc – No narration or graphics). Highlights inc..
