 Saturday 13. July 2019 Winter Photo Shooting @ Reefsteamers Steam Depot

A winter photo shoot  is scheduled for 13th July 2019, specifically for steam loco enthusiasts / action photographers to access the Reefsteamers depot in Germiston to photograph a 12AR and possibly a 15F loco in steam doing repeated run pasts in the beautiful early morning light. All action will take place within the Reefsteamers security area where there is secure parking.

As well as a running a loco in steam there are many other photographic opportunities - several parked locos including a condensing 25 class, 25Nc's, partially stripped locos, derelict wagons, coaches, sheds and large workshops with a 15CA, Class 6 locos, coaches and other equipment under repair.

We assemble at the depot just before dawn for a quick cup of coffee - the freezing weather makes for fantastic steam photography at a cost of R750 per photographer and R700 per accompanying visitor. For safety reasons young children (ie below 15 )are not allowed. We restrict numbers to 30 photographers at each shoot to ensure all ‘get the shot’. Early booking is essential.

These monies all go to preserving vintage steam locos in South Africa. Please contact me at to make your booking.

Terms and conditions apply.
