Post by Dylan Knott »

Anyone know of any DVD's featuring the George - Knysna line in the period 1980 - 1992?

&quot;The Outeniqua Choo Tjoe, pronounced Oat-tar-nee-qua Chew Chew is the last remaining scheduled steam service still operating in South Africa. It connects the towns of George and Knysna, here on the Western Cape. But due to track maintenance and a landslide the motive power has been replaced by a diesel and the journey has been reduced, by a third of it's usual running length. The service terminates at the seaside resort of Wilderness. The full service runs for sixty eight kilometers along the coast, in an area known locally as the &quot; Garden Route&quot;. The journey takes two hours in each direction. <br /><br /><br />The Class 32 Diesel locomotive, number 32029 was built by the General Electric Company of the USA in 1959 and provides the motive power until the track can be fully upgraded to allow the Class 19D's steam locomotives to again run on this line. <br /><br />Total Running Time 59 Minutes.&quot;
