Review of South African Steam - Cape Gauge DVD

Fantastic big steam action at Friends of the Rail, with a 15F, 19D and a 24 in action. The we visit Sistonka Stimela, with a 19D and a massive GMAM Beyer-Garratt. Finally, we visit Reefsteamers and see a 25NC, a 15F and a 12AR in action. Superb pre dawn to post sunset light and engines being worked hard. Hear the exhaust! Crisp fall weather makes for great steam effects.
