Steam By The Ocean DVD
The George to Knysna branch skirts the Indian Ocean in the southern portion of South Africa. This 42 mile line featured class 24, 2-8-2's with Vanderbilt tenders. Most trains were mixed trains, with a coach on the rear. We will see the famous Kaimaans River Bridge, lakes region, and Knysna Lagoon, as well as the steep grades on this line. Several interesting meets of other trains occur, and we see a special passenger train doubleheaded, as well as a freight with a pusher engine on the rear. Due to washouts this line no longer is in service. In addition to this line we make a visit to Voorbai yard and see a 24 switching freight cars, and we visit the shed in Port Elizabeth, and make a morning visit to Grahamstown to see a some nice 19D's at work. Besides trackside photography we also ride the entire line from George to Knysna and back for different views of the trains and scenery. Informative narration and live audio from 1984.
