A BLOG FOR LO­CAL TRAIN SPOT­TERS

The Witness - Wheels - - INDUSTRY -

CALL­ING all steam­heads, Les Pivnic and Char­lie Lewis have posted the latest chap­ter on their blog, “Soul of a Rail­way”.

They welcome other train fundis’ com­ments, cor­rec­tions and crit­i­cisms to their ninth chap­ter.

The latest chap­ter fo­cuses on Fran­schhoek and Ceres branches, and con­tains the same high-qual­ity and evoca­tive pho­to­graphs of trains that is mak­ing the blog very pop­u­lar.

The writ­ers say their pro­ject aims to con­vey to fu­ture gen­er­a­tions the essence of a once mag­nif­i­cent trans­port net­work in South Africa — the South African Rail­ways or Sar.

The chap­ter on Natal is still be­ing com­piled by Pivnic. Please e-mail al­wyn.viljoen@wheels.co.za if you have ma­te­rial to con­trib­ute.

— WR.
