At the close of the nineteenth century when the Boers of theZuid-Afrikaansche Republiek (ZAR) were still living in a pre- industrial timeframe and had never seen a train, a railway company, the" Nederlandsche Zuid- Afrikaansche Spoorweg Maatschaapij" (NZASM) laid the foundation of a modern transport system.
