Happy Easter, Everybunny!


(I owe the ‘Everybunny’ version to the active imagination of 8-year-old granddaughter R.)

Today we went into training for an Easter-Egg-Eating marathon.  This is what we did it with, on a trip from Kloof up the hill from Durban to Botha’s Hill even further up the hill, and on to Inchanga:

And this is a sample of the views, through a rather dirty window.  Note the Springbok emblem on the glass, though, as the symbol of South African Railways:

    What a cool locomotive! When I was a kid I lived sort of near several restored steam trains and my dad was a huge train enthusiast. Seeing a steam locomotive brings back lots of fun childhood memories!

  2. I’m puzzled by the locomotive. I’d have thought that during the steam era Südafrika’s connection with THE EMPIRE , XD would have had English loco’s. The one in your picture, has a USA look about some parts, English about others and who knows what about the rest.
    I’ve checked my British Steam loco book and can only find one 4. 8. 0. configuration this one of yours maybe 4.8.2. hard to see.
    As a bit of a steam loco nutter, would you please enlighten me, as to the make/history of your loco.
    Thank you Col. XD

    We had an Easter Egg hunt with little Emryn in their big garden. She had a lovely time, too.
