Picture of the Week: South Africa 19D3362

A nice action shot of a South African 4-8-2, 19D 3362 hurrying along right in the centre of the country absolutely miles from anywhere, the nearest place being Flips Kop, if you can find it on any map good luck. We seemed to end up in lots of these locations but they were well worth it for the scenery. It was a good job we had some good maps, and our camper van never broke down as we would have been in big trouble! Here it is with the 07.45 Maclear to Sterksroom train with a fine train of red and cream coaches.
Tuesday 4th September 1973.
