NGG16A 155

Stop Press! 

155’s boiler is completed at Wonder Steam and loaded for the return to Sandstone.

The rebuilt boiler of NGG16A 155 has now been loaded at Wonder Steam in Pretoria for return to Sandstone. This was done  with an official permit as railway maintenance departments were declared as essential services by the Minister on the 4th of May 2020 meaning we could obtain a permit to collect the boiler as it is part of maintenance. This also means that we can now continue with the restoration at Sandstone.

The attached photo shows 155 being loaded and the PDF, a copy of the Government Gazette relating to Railway Maintenance. - Read more here
