Soot, Smoke,
and Memories!

When our family lived in Zambia, and
while I attended Hillside Junior School,
I rode the train from Victoria Falls to
Bulawayo at the beginning and ending
of every term. How I miss these huge,
wonderful locomotives.

Some more pictures can be viewed on
a Livingstone, Zambia Railway Museum
page.

Vic Falls Rail Station Vic Falls rail station I remember this train station vividly!
As a schoolboy, I laid bottle caps on the rails
while waiting for a train, and was wowed by the
flattened, hot metal when the train smashed them
flat. Thanks to Ian Simmons for these snaps
that resurrected warm memories.
