Our steamy friends up a bit North, Friends of the Rail, have announced that they are hosting a Mid-Winter Photo Weekend on 8-10 June 2012.
The weekend will start off with a photography lecture at Hermanstad station on Friday Night. On Saturday, photography will take place at the Capital Park Loco Depot (Pretoria) and later in late afternoon and evening on the Cullinan branch line. Night time photos will be posed at the station. The ‘run-bys’ will be staged as ‘false departures and entries’ around Cullinan on Sunday morning and the train will return back to Capital Park in the mid-afternoon..
Come and enjoy a winter weekend of steam photography in the ideal conditions that only a dry high-veldt winter can provide; that magic combination of clear blue skies and crisply cold weather for those great shots just chock full of atmospheric steam!
This brochure was created for and sent on behalf of Friends of the Rail,
|“With a plume thrown confidently over her shoulder, her gaunt, steely rods whirling with stubborn purpose, an insatiable fire beating fiercely within her iron heart and the yearning call of her spirit lofted to the heavens via the brass-throated whistle, the steam locomotive is passion personified in warm, living, pulsing steel and is surely worthy of the right to live.”
Preserving South Africa’s Steam Heritage for all to enjoy.
