Live Steamers

Before I came to the UK I lived very close to the Rand Society of Model Engineers that meets at Len Rutter Park in Florida. I used to do a quick look around whenever I saw they were open and was always amazed at the quality of the live steamers that ran there. Quite a number of the locos were based on real SAR machines, and the level of detail was astounding. Unfortunately between here and there all of my images went missing and I have not worked out where they are at this moment, so these images are really duplicates of what I had before. Hopefully one day I will find the images, as well as the many hours of video I shot there. Incidentally one of the locos from Sanrasm (a 4-10-2T NBL Side Tank Loco from 1928) has been plinthed outside the Stationary Engine Museum, and it is not too far from another plinthed ex-Sanrasm loco at Florida Junction.
