    Here are 59 photos, most taken by Les Tindall.

    Five are from Nairobi, most of the rest were taken in South Africa. I have grouped locos by class. There are 18 photos of two-foot gauge Garratts, including four which are now in Britain:

    Thanks for posting those, it is silly but although I am only 40 minutes drive from MSoI I have yet to actually go, your photos might spur me on.
