Remarks & Notes 
Black and white study of the iconic 4-8-4 steamlocomotive "Red Devil" class 26 # 3450 (part of the Transnet National Collection, now maintained and operated by the Ceres Raill Company), pulling a 13 cars photo freight for FarRail Tours with full steam between Nuy and Mowers on the line of the former New Cape Central Railway from Worcester to Robertson-Swellendam-Voorbaai. In the background the up to 1600 meter high Langeberge mountain range. In this picture, taken from far away, you can see 5 small white "dots" in the firebox range of the locomotive. This are holes, which are made for the intake of air for the Gas-Producer Combustion System (GPCS) of the "Red Devil". You have a direct view into the glowing firebox!! Although clearly visible is the double chimney (Lempor ejector) of this most powerfull narrow gauge steamlocomotive, rebuilt by David Wardale from 1979 to 1981 from a 25NC class of 1953.

Good Light, Good Scenery, and a Train

Landscape photography is difficult due to the challenge of combining good light and good scenery. Good railroad photography enters another level of complexity since it requires the first two while there is a train in view.
