Time Line - A Life Chasing Trains

These are some favorites selected to represent the various periods in my over 50 year photographic odyssey.




A mixed train to Knysna crosses the Kaaimans River bridge. This was one of the classic photo locations back in the old days. As South African Railways rationalized their network and closed branch lines, the Knysna branch survived as a steam powered tourist line. But more recently the line was closed by a landslide and has never been reopened.  October 1983.
