Endangered Species

Stumbling upon these sleeping giants was quite a memorable experience. Once unstoppable as they thundered through the vast Karoo by day and night, they are now quietly rusting away. Amazing to see the 1912 date stamped on one of the steam locomotives wheels (click on middle pic) and the remains of a second class coach which was so familiar to many in the 1960's and 70's.
