Remarks & Notes 
With just the dying embers of the autumn afternoon’s sun remaining, and running ahead of schedule at 17:12hrs, 18-434 & 18-435 are seen here negotiating the difficult section through the top of Boughton (steep gradients / tight curves and turn backs) as they start the next stage of the long drop down into Pietermaritzburg with a Durban bound Shosholoza Meyl "Daylight Sitter". Shosholoza Meyl have decided to pull the plug on the Daylight Sitter service between Johannesburg and Durban from the 1st April 2014.

Rare South African photographs (older and newer) on RailPictures.Net, where the potential to recreate them either no longer exists for any number of reasons, or the chances of another opportunity are very slim or non existent!
