Welcome to DRISA – a volunteer project to digitise and host material relating to the history and heritage of the railways of South Africa. The project has three main parts.

  • DRISA Images, in collaboration with the Transnet, is in the process to digitise the photographic material held by its Transnet Heritage Library in Johannesburg
  • DRISA Documents hosts a number of magazines and newsletters in searchable form.
  • DRISA Links provides a list of links to digital material hosted by others on the internet relating to South African railway history.

For suggesting improvements of corrections to the site, please contact Johannes Haarhoff (DRISA Volunteer Project) at johannes@haarhoff.org.za.

For permission to use any of the images in any form, please contact Yolanda Meyer (Librarian at the Transnet Heritage Library) at Yolanda.Meyer@transnet.net
