Abandoned railway near Vereeniging

Post by Steve Appleton »

A question was asked on The Heritage Portal about the remains of an abandoned railway line discovered near Vereeniging. A respondent, Richard Eades, replied that this formed part of a power station coal line running between Grootvlei and Redan power stations. He gives his recollections of photographing steam-hauled trains near Bosrivier.
This together with a couple of pictures can be viewed here:
