A Hub or Nodal Point: South African Railway History and related historical interests A friend Bruce Jones, a pensioner like most of our readers, with his science and maths background has created a “hub or nodal point” called: ZA Police and Railway Hub and has registered it as: http://www.zapoliceandrailwayhub.com/ When you have time, you are invited to go and have a look! It is our intention to create some kind of a platform where “we” – like minded people - can place links to our various interest groups. He also helps with the technical issues related to THE ULOLWE and The eNONGQAI. From 14 April 2009 I have a Face Book site called: Foto's SA Spoorweë / Photos SA Railways, the reference is: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=74709226744 I have found that our South African historical interests scattered and fragmented in cyber space, the more I do research, the more I find this in other fields as well. If somebody would like more information please contact Bruce Jones – he is a Scotsman - at the following email: "Bruce Jones" jucebone@telkomsa.net

The End Kind Regards – Hennie Heymans
