African Steam Safari - Luxor to Sir Lowry's Pass

Published by the Australian Association of Railway Enthusiasts, this is the final book, in a series of three, featuring regular-service operations on the continent of Africa.

Produced in the same format as the first two volumes, African Steam Safari – Luxor to Sir Lowry's Pass combines all the diverse elements of finding and chasing steam in both obscure and challenging places, as well as in the relatively comfort of South Africa.

From the banks of the Nile in Egypt to the deserts of Sudan, from the jungles of Zaire to the splendour of the Zambezi River gorge at Victoria Falls, from the Indian Ocean coast of Mozambique to the lush and verdant Garden Route in South Africa, our intrepid contributors experienced much of what Africa had to offer. Beauty, adventure, mystery, conflict & even danger were all part of the African mix!

The final chapter covering the Garden Route ends this series with a bundle of stunning images on the 967km journey from the bustling port city of Port Elizabeth, across the arid Little Karoo, over the spectacular Montagu Pass, skirting the Indian Ocean, and ending in the lush green fields of the western Cape. Steam locos & crews with a job to do!
