A BLOG FOR LOCAL TRAIN SPOTTERS
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 email@example.com if you have material to contribute.
More photos and history of the railways in Natal are still being sought for this blog.
