Touwsrivier Western Cape South Africa 30th May 1982

Touwsrivier Western Cape South Africa 30th May 1982
A panorama stitch of two photos I took at the SAR Touws River steam shed in 1982 and that I only recently realised were taken alongside each other for this reason.

There are 52 withdrawn steam engines in this Barry Island-like view of the Touws River yard. A total of 131 locos were present with only 4 in steam and although it may look like Woodham's, unlike that scrapyard, only one engine has survived out of these 131.

Berny has particularly liked this photo

Thanks Berny. Steam lovers will be saddened to know that 130 of these were scrapped.

The steamers and the black and white make for a real trip back in time. Well done.
