  • $34.95

This programme features all manner of operations, but chiefly steam, over the whole of Southern Africa. There are condensed reviews of past tours, but also much by the way of general operations not yet shown on our other programmes.

These include De Aar - Kimberley steam Specials, Witbank Colliery steam operations, Magaliesburg specials, Trans Karoo Pretoria steam specials, final Germiston regular steam turns, Randfontein Estates gold mine Garratts, Welkom gold mine steam duties,  Bloemfontein - Kimberley specials and  Sishen - Saldanha heavy haul ore line.

Also featured is Transnet Museum's 1991 "Brush with Steam" rail tour. The first leg to the Eastern Transvaal is on the recently restored "Union Limited" 1930's Vintage Train. The second leg departed for Kimberley with a lengthy 18 coach train behind 2 locomotives. Enthusiasts were treated to 5 days intensive steam action on the famous Kimberley to De Aar line.
