    South African Class 6E1 Locomotive

    Jon, every thing here has changed in the last few years. There have been major line closures all over - the Montague Pass line still exists but has not seen an actual train for a while. You are correct in that a Power Van has been used for tourists, but has now been out of service for 4...

    A lot of pictures from Hanover this month (20p)
