\"There is something about the South African railways - whether it is the light, the countryside or the massive sophistication of the locomotives that use them, like the Beyer Garratt 4-8-2 + 2-8-4s - that is particularly photogenic and South African Steam Today captures this strange beauty. David Rodgers has compiled a superb tribute to South African steam, covering the period 1976-78, and the quality of the 200 photographs belies the fact that it is, essentially, an album of working steam. No steam enthusiast should miss the magnificent photography and fascinating locomotives contained in South African Steam Today.\"
