Bloemfontein Steam Loco Shed

South Africa - 1985

A visit to Bleomfontein steam loco shed took place on a Sunday afternoon when most of the steam locos was present. Classes 15F, 25NC and 19D were all in steam. Although not as busy as the 1970's before electrification of the Kroonstad line, Bleomfontein was almost heaven for steam enthusiasts. I never counted the engines, but there must have been at least 50 in steam ready for work on Monday morning. A wonderful place to be and soak up the atmosphere.
