HUTCHINSON

Hutchinson is on the main Cape Town to Johannesburg line, about halfway between Beaufort West and De Aar. It is the junction for the long branch to Calvinia and had a large, separate signal box. That section of line was converted to CTC and electrified in the early 1980s, but the lever frame looks reasonably intact in this March 2008 shot by Chris King.
