Hi, I am an italian man that was working for the Rhodesian Railways i n 1956/1958, as fireman on these kind of steam engines, all around the Country, from Salisbury (Harare) to Umtali (Mutare), From Bulawayo to Que Que and Gwelo. I lived for several months in Lochinvar and I was a member of the Lochinvar Railways Recreation Club, when the manager was Mr Peter, and in the Canteen Mrs. and Mr Pearson.
I had very good times in those years and meet very nice people, and I can say I feel nostalgic. My dream is the possibility to come another time to see those places. Best regards to all the persons that will read me.

Grazie Mario,
The LRRC became Hideout Club 99 which we carried on the tradition from '75-90. Had great tennis court and double swimming pools and ofcourse the popular garden restaurant. Heard the place is in shambles. But watch the space.
