Man from museum:
The way we live now
By Steam to Sennar Junction A work-stained steam engine belches smoke into the desert sky. This is Sudan, and the sun beats down.
Hugh Phillips , who runs a family firm in Tredegar, South
Wales, clambers gingerly on to the footplate. It's an emotional moment for him - the last time he will see the engines he has helped restore to haul famine relief trains to the south. He's completing a European Community contract to rehabilitate Sudan's once-thriving railways.
With Hugh is his son Adrian, formerly a farmer. The two Welshmen, old and trusted friends of the Sudanese, cope cheerfully with days of sweat and dust, lonely nights in spartan hotels, the grinding down of machinery, as well as the human spirit, in one of the harshest engineering environments of the world.
