South African Railways

Guy Wicksall takes us back to 1971 when he was in South Africa and chronicled the railroad system there. As a mechanical engineer, he traveled extensively throughout the world. He is known for his 16 mm photography. He recently presented the chapter with a complete set of his movies which were transferred to DVD. Much of the footage he took was of steam powered trains that still existed at the time.

 

 

Upcoming Meetings
Two more very interesting presentations are on tap for May and June. On May 21, we will hear about “Early Railroads of Ontario County” by Robert Ward Jr., Ph.D. Then, on June 18, Paul Shinal will present a program on the Auburn Branch, which recently celebrated its 175th anniversary.
