The Final Chapter DVD
In 1984 we were fortunate to see the "Last of the Garratts" on line workings with a day-long ballast train hauled by GMAM Garratt 4088 from Waterval Boven to Breyten and return. These were the most modern Garratts in South Africa and are 4-8-2+2-8-4 wheel arrangement engines. We also see different engines in yard switching duties(Shunting). Next we chase doubleheaded class 24 2-8-4's from Breyten to Lothair with some nice results. Lastly we visit the Randfontein Estates Gold Mine Railway near Johannesburg, where GMAM Garratts work on this Industrial Line hauling gold ore, or reef as it is called in South Africa. Besides the Garratts we will also see a few of the older 4-8-2 engines that were formerly South Africa Railways locomotives. Live audio and informative narration and the last video in our 1984 South African Steam Collection.
