Remarks & Notes 
The very first light of the day illuminates the spray from the mighty Victoria Falls, giving an impressive and colorful background for this passenger train pulled by NRZ's Garratt Class 15A 4-6-4+4-6-4 steam locomotive #414 "Ubhejane" ("Black Rhinoceros") crossing THE Victoria Falls Bridge. Sir Cecil Rhodes, Father of the "Cape to Cairo Railway", instructed the engineers to "build the bridge across the Zambezi where the trains, as they pass, will catch the spray of the Falls". This picture was taken from The Victoria Falls Hotel's Terrace with a focal length 200 mm.
