Gralf Popken Fine Arts - Lisboa

noch tief erregt von der Geschichte
von der sie wesenhaft durchdrungen
Legierung auf ewig, mit Mythen eng verwoben
strebt von allen Seiten scheinbar. . .dauerhaft nach oben

As so often happens, it was a combination of influences and events that led to the purchase of the first coach, the start of what would become Rovos Rail.

A Wilbur Smith heroine with her own private railway coach, a man called Phil Acutt with a passion for trains and the presence of the Witbank Steam Railway in the coal-mining town where Rohan Vos ran his successful auto spares business, all played a part.
