Jozi's own steam train

07. July 2018                                               Reefsteamers Depot Winter Steam Photo Shooting


The 07th July winter shoot is arranged specially for steam enthusiasts/photographers to access the Reefsteamers depot in Germiston to photograph locos in steam doing repeated run pasts. As well as one or more running locos in steam, there are many other photographic opportunities - several parked locos including a GMAM Garratt, derelict wagons, coaches, sheds and large workshop with equipment under repair.

We assemble at the depot just before dawn - the freezing weather makes for fantastic steam photography at a cost of R750 per photographer and R700 for non-photographer. No Children allowed due safety reason. The event is limited to a maximum of 30 photographers per loco in steam and experienced steam photographers are on hand guide comers to the genre.
