More Steam train memories

On Wednesday July 18 (“Golden steam train memories”), Norman Mcfarlane wrote a wonderful article of steam trains holidays.

Wow, he really had such insight into a time that is still so precious to so many.

From 1950 to 1958 I travelled from De Aar to Cape Town to school in Rondebosch with friends that enjoyed the journeys as much as I did.

When leaning out of the train window we often got soot from a – most likely – Jessica in our faces and hair. Great times.

After retiring we spent a few years in Lutzville.

The Vanrhyns Pass still remains one of the really great passes in our country.

Thank you again for bringing us Bolander and great guys that write such articles.
