Steam operations were still quite widespread in some parts of Africa in the mid 1970s and during this period Geoff Monks travelled to several countries in search of little visited lines and rare locomotive classes.

This volume depicts steam at work in Kenya, Angola, Mozambique and Swaziland, showing such delights as wood-burning Garratts on the Benguela Railway, narrow gauge Bagnall, Orenstean & Koppel and ALCO built engines on remote jungle lines and the world’s last Atlantic 4-4-2s in action in Mozambique.

In Kenya we see Maroon Garratts and named 2-8-2s whilst in Swaziland there are massive 4-8-2s on the ore trains.

A kaleidoscope of steam locomotive classes almost all of which have disappeared forever.

Until the early 1980s, an amazing array of steam power could still be found in the Republic of Indonesia and this programme features the work of Geoff Monks and Ray Hammond who visited each country in time to record this remarkable scene on cine film.

This is the first of a pair of programmes covering the two principle islands of the Repubic and it begin on the rack and adhesion worked sections of the West Sumatra system operated by 0-10-0 tanks of Class E10.

We then move to West Java where turn-of-the-century 4-4-0s operating alongside more modern steam power. At the one-tome mallett capital of the World, Cibatu, we see a class CC50 2-6-6-0 on the Garut branch and a DD52 2-8-8-0 working on the main line. Within a few years of being filmed, all of these rare classes had passed into history.

As part of the former British Empire of India it is not surprising that many of the steam locomotives which saw service in what became West Pakistan in 1947, had been supplied by builders based in the UK.

In contrast to the situation in post-independence India, where a domestic locomotive manufacturing industry had flooded the railways with modern standard types, Pakistan soldiered on with its elderly colonial stock. In the 1970s, Ray Hammond visited the country to record these remarkable classes on cine-film.

We begin on the metre gauge in South-East Pakistan where B.E.S.A . 4-6-0s and I.R.S. 2-8-2s are seem on the remnants of a once larger colonial system.

Various locations on the broad gauge are then visited where classic types such as SPS 4-4-0s and SGS 0-6-0s are seen in profusion.

A journey is also taken along the Khyber Pass on the once weekly passenger train.

The archive film is sourced from 8mm colour cine film and mastered on professional equipment. An authentic soundtrack has been added along with an informative commentary.

South America has provided the steam enthusiast with a great variety of types for many years and in the 1970s, Ray Hammond visited Brazil, Argentin and Chile to record some of these classes on cine film.

We begin in the sugar growing areas of Brazil where almost every locfomotive in view is different. Moving south, immaculate Baldwins are seen on the VFCO followed by visits to Perus Cement and the Santos a Jundai cable inclines while super power is seen in action on the E.F.Dona Teresa Cristina system.

In argentina, Pacifics on the General Belgrano, a 4-40- on the Urquiza and the 4-8-0s and 2-6-2Ts on the Roca, amongst others, provide a rich variety which was approaching its demise. A visit to the Esquel line which is still extant in the 1990s concludes this section.

A brief look at southern Chile with its elderly steam types in evidence rounds off the programme.

In the 1970s large portions of the rail network in the Republic of South Africa were still entirely worked by steam. During this period Geoff Monks, Ray Hammond and Dave Rodgers visited the country and recorded a variety of type on cine film.

Beginning in the Northern Transvaal, we see 15F and 19D 4-8-2s on the Pietersburg to Tzaneen line, followed by visits to Germiston, Springs and Witbank.

We then move to the main lines of the Orange Free State which were dominated by 15F and 23 Class 4-8-2s and the famous 25NC 4-8-4s. In Natal, several Garratt classes are seen prior to their early demise. The programme concludes with visits to industrial locations in the Tranvaal and Natal where a variety of ex-main line and pure industrial types are seen.

This volume recalls the days when steam traction could be found in every country in Europe. Our travels take us to the mountains of Austria, the meadows of Ireland and the pine forests of Finland. A great many different classes of locomotives are seen, mostly in normal service with the original footage being mainly taken in the 1960s.

Beginning on the famous Vordernberg to Eisenerz rack railway in Austria, we progress to the nearby Donaeitz steelworks and then to West Germany where DB and industrial locomotives can be seen hard at work.

Two Irish railtours of 1961 and 1964 come next. Blue 4-4-0s and other types are seen both on the tour trains and in normal service on the CIE and UTA.

Finally we visit Denmark, Sweden and Finland in the very early 1960s. The footage of locomotives in normal service is especially rare, particularly so in Sweden.

This volume recalls the days when steam traction could be found in every country in Europe. Our travels take us from the plains of Poland to the heat of the Mediterranean. A great many different classes of locomotives are seen, mostly in normal service between the early 1960s and early 1980s.

We begin in Poland where we see freight and passenger classes in profusion while an equally steamy East Germany reveals numerous Pacifics and other types still in service during a late 1970s visit.

In France the final days of steam on the Paris Nord and Bastille suburban workings are witnessed before we head into Switzerland for a brief look at a steam excursion on the Waldenburgerbahn near Basle,

We next visit Italy where conventional and Crosti-boilered locos are seen at hard at work and, finally, we visit Greece to join a steam tour.

Main Lines in Transvall & Cape Province

Jim Bowller visited South Africa several times during the 1970s and 1980s and this is the first in a series of programmes to feature his work in the Republic at a time when many lines were still steam-operated.

Beginning on the Springs - Breyten line, a number of Class 15F 4-8-2s are seen hard at work on the frequent local goods trains. Most had acquired 12-wheel tenders from withdrawn Class 23 4-8-2s.

Moving to the Mafeking - Warrenton - Kimberley line in the Cape, GM4 Garratts and l9Ds, including the Wardale-modified 2644, work goods and passenger traffic between Mafeking and Vryburg while 25NC

4-8-4s are seen between Vryburg and Warrenton.

The programme concludes on the famous Kimberley - De Aar section which was dominated by condensing and non-condensing 4-8-4s. A Class 24 2-8-4 also passes, having come off the Douglas branch.

Main Lines in The Orange Free State

Jim Bowller visited South Africa several times during the 1970s and 1980s and this is another in a series of programmes to feature his work in the Republic at a time when many lines were still steam-operated.

Moving to the Bloemfontein to Kroonstad trunk line, the final days of steam are witnessed with immaculate Class 23 4-8-2s charging through Glen and Karee.
