MEMORIES OF VICTORIAN RAILWAYS STEAM

South Australian Railways 1965

On a trip to South Australia in 1965 we captured the last days of SAR steam on 8mm. I also shot a few B&W photos. At some stage, I'll post the movies.

Most of these engines were on sidings at Mile End depot, destined for a future railway museum.
