Zimbabwe Steam 2

As mentioned in my last post on my visit to Zimbabwe, due to the kindness of Alan Crotty and Fabrice Lanoue, I have access to a number of other great pictures of steam on Zimbabwe’s railways.  It is a shame not to share them………..

Just playing trains; my weekday life is a bit more serious though!

  1. I grew up looking at a photo of the Vic Falls Bridge very much like that one in one of my books. When my fiancé and I were in there in 2001, travelling overland with a truck tour, we heard a steam whistle, and went to investigate. Sure enough, there in the middle of town was an excursion train that would take us to the middle of the bridge, feed us wine and cheese and return. So we cleaned up, paid the man, and went straight into the picture books ourselves. It is a cherished memory; thanks for reviving it.

  2. I really like the second picture down which looks like a good old mixed bag of a goods train. Could you imagine if they had used them on the lner or lms for such trains? Probably case of a sledgehammer to crack a nut. Lol.
