Enjoy a dawn and early morning chase of doubleheaded 15AR class 4-8-2’s on a passenger train on the Stormburg to Rosmead line. Visit the famous De Aar to Kimberley line and see solid action of class 25NC 4-8-4’s, and make a visit to the De Aar Shed to see a group of engines, and one being coaled. This is all regular service steam action on mainline trackage – in 1980!
This is Cape Gauge 3 foot 6 inches (their standard Gauge). The 4-8-4’s look very American with knuckle couplers, and cow catchers, as well as 60 inch main drivers, and a good barking exhaust. Lots of action in many places.
