Transport-riding, the usual means of moving produce before coming of railways, provided a livelihood for many colonists. Here wagons are moving down the Town Hill towards the city. From: http://www.pmbhistory.co.za/?showcontent%5B_id%5D=93
Today marks the 1st Anniversary of the passing of our Beloved Tata (Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela) Hubby and I went to the Capture Site in Howick, Pietermaritzburg, it's about 8km from where we live to put a White Rose in Remembrance of Him. Rest in Peace Tata
Sunrise and the Blue Train, headed by 18-773 / 18-788, is seen here crossing the Pentrich Viaduct as it leaves Pietermaritzburg for the final leg of an overnight journey to Durban. The much anticipated promise of a new Class 20E locomotive in special Blue Train livery for this trip did unfortunately not materialise - the special Blue Train locomotives are still in the shops.
