Barkly East Reverses

Post by Hermann Kuhne »

I found a great video on You Tube on the reverses between Lady Grey and Barkly East, "Riding the Reverses". That inspired me to try recreating it in some way on Railworks Simulator. I have already done about 9 SA routes in Railworks. Anybody with info on the reverses e.g. photos, maps etc please contact me. Especially the Melk (1st Reverse) is badly portrayed in Google Earth. For that matter, almost all of them. Clouds obscure the views and bad resolution. I know visiting them myself would be ideal. But somehow out of the question.
