  • Zimbabwe - Garratt Freight to Cement 2005, Part One

    Garratt 2-8-2+2-8-2 number 612 heads a lengthy chartered freight from Bulawayo to Cement in August 2005. The Garratt has to work relatively hard but nevertheless maintains a respectable speed over much of the journey. The locals show little regard for lineside safety and it seems that in one village, the local school is turned out to watch both the Garratt and the strange foreigners chasing it ! Filmed by Tony Hollins.

  • Zimbabwe - Charter Freight Bulawayo to Sawmills 2005

    Garratt 4-6-4+4-6-4 number 416 heads a chartered mixed freight from Bulawayo to Sawmills in August 2005. Water is taken at Nymandelova. Locals show a remarkably casual attitude to an approaching train on the climb to the bridge here. I apologise for the incorrect start title which says the charter is to Cement - it's actually to Sawmills ! Filmed by Tony Hollins.

  • Zimbabwe trains 4 Vic Falls 2

    Tuesday 3 March 2015, the mixed train from Bulawayo has arrived and is shunted while a red SNCC (Societe Nationale des Chemins de Fer du Congo) locomotive waits for clearance, and a pilot, to cross the Zambezi gorge into Zambia with a freight train. We look over the Beyer-Garratt locomotive and vintage carriages stored nearby before being invited into the cab of the Congolese loco by the South African driver.

  • Botswana - Henschel 19Ds on real freight, 2005

    The mining company BCL owns a processing plant at Selebi-Phikwe in Botswana (not Zimbabwe as the titling states!!) and operates a small fleet of 19D class 4-8-2s built by Henschel in the early 1950s. The locomotives work well, being well maintained and with, obviously, working sanding gear ! They seem to be fitted with "home made" tenders converted from tank wagons, giving them a huge water capacity. Here we see two locos being prepared and then later, operating on very heavy trains loaded with ore. The locos don't appear to carry numbers but can be identified by the facts that one has BCL on the tender and the other has a set of cow horns on the front ! Filmed by Tony Hollins in August 2005.
