LOCOMOTIVES in SOUTH AFRICA.

BRANCH LINE AGE. The rural branch-line railway is now a thing of the past. From the 1930s the minor railways of Britain declined in use, until economic necessity finally caused their closure in the early sixties. Here captured is a view of branch-line life from its heyday, through declining years, to closure and final abandonment. Pictures of stations as they disappear, turn into houses or become gardens.
