Durban to PMB – Natal old rail line

The Natal old main Rail line is of great interest to the Railway enthusiasts. I have just published images of the stations and support infrastructure in the GALLERY , under Bridges, Dams, Roads and Rail – Old Natal Rail Line. Many of these structures are being neglected and will eventually disappear. There are a few exceptions, such as Kloof and Hillcrest, where commercial food outlets use the premises, and are responsible for upkeep.
