• Zimbabwe - 14A Garratt flies on fast freight (Part 2), July 2017

    The beautiful NZR 14A Garratt number 525 put on a great show for us on a chartered freight train in July 2017. Here we see Part 2 of the excellent show that the loco crew put on for us. The charter ran from Bulawayo to Cement, where the 14A was connected to a rather rusty water tank to be filled for the return run (which we didn't follow). Please try to find Part 1 for the fabulous sunrise sequences. The day finished with a rare use of the turntable - although the 360 degree turn does seem a little pointless !

    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 !

  • Zimbabwe - Garratt hauling coal Hwange to Thomson Jt, July 2017

    The Hwange Colliery in Zimbabwe offers one of the very last regular steam operations in the world in 2017. Up until recently the coal mine had two Garratts operating but, on my recent visit in July this year, they appear to be down to the last steamable example. The colliery has numerous other Garratts (and other types) scattered around the depot, but none are in a working condition. Number 611 is a Class 16, 2-8-2 + 2-8-2 .... a truly magnificent machine .... way overpowered for the shunting and short trip working asked of it. On Monday, 17th July 2017, the Garratt takes a loaded train of coal the short distance from the colliery to Thomson Junction, on the mainline. She returns soon after with a few empty wagons. Quite how long it will be before the diesels at TJ are allowed up to the c...

    On my recent visit to Zimbabwe, I jumped at the opportunity to take a short trip in the cab of a Class 15A 4-6-4 + 4-6-4 Garratt locomotive. These 15A's, known as the "Flying Fifteens", were fast (82mph) and capable of handling both freight and passenger work. Sadly, number 414, featured here, is far from being in its best condition .... although it was the best one of the few Garratts that we had in steam during our visit in July 2017. This particular example was one of only ten that were built in France for Rhodesian Railways in 1952, despite its classic British design ! How long these giants of the railway will be steamable is uncertain. I would encourage any enthusiasts and groups to make a visit to the country and pay money to see them working. The longer that the Garratts bring forei...

Quite how long it will be before the diesels at TJ are allowed up to the colliery is not known at this stage. If you want to see a Garratt hauling freight, I suggest you take an African safari as soon as possible !

It's many years since Garratts worked coal trains in the UK (although I regret to say that I can remember them) but in 2005, if you were lucky, the experience could still be had in Zimbabwe. Here we see Garratt 4-6-4+4-6-4's numbers 12 and 22 working the service between Hwange Colliery and Thomson Junction in August of that year. Filmed by Tony Hollins.

South Africa is making every effort to secure the release of millions of rands in new notes after a dead body was found on the plane delivering the cargo. South African ambassador to Zimbabwe Vusi Mavimbela says, the US based Western Global Airlines freight plane was enroute to South Africa on Sunday when it lost signal and made an unscheduled landing at Harare International. Two South Africa Reserve Bank officials on board and the crew are assisting with investigations. For more News visit: http://www.sabc.co.za/news

4-6-4+4-6-4 Garratt number 11 heads a demonstration coal train from Thomson Junction to Hwange in August 2005. A diesel hauled freight passes Thomson Junction before the Garratt leaves. A baobab tree provides a very typical African setting part way through the Garratt's run. Filmed by Tony Hollins.

On my recent visit to Zimbabwe, I jumped at the opportunity to take a short trip in the cab of a Class 15A 4-6-4 + 4-6-4 Garratt locomotive. These 15A's, known as the "Flying Fifteens", were fast (82mph) and capable of handling both freight and passenger work. Sadly, number 414, featured here, is far from being in its best condition .... although it was the best one of the few Garratts that we had in steam during our visit in July 2017. This particular example was one of only ten that were built in France for Rhodesian Railways in 1952, despite its classic British design ! How long these giants of the railway will be steamable is uncertain. I would encourage any enthusiasts and groups to make a visit to the country and pay money to see them working. The longer that the Garratts bring foreign exchange into Zimbabwe, the longer they'll be kept in working order. Incidentally, there are a few editing liberties taken here - I beg forgiveness !!

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.

We see the Garratt passing through the one tunnel on the system and going over an elegant steel girder bridge. These 15A's were the fastest of the African Garratts, designed primarily for passenger work. Part 1 can be viewed at - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6HYVLXwgPoU
