Reefsteamers report that their 15CA 2056 ran their first official main line
trip. Thanks very much to Shaun Ackerman for the update. Reefsteamers are
extremely competent at restoring and returning locomotives to steam. The
proof is there for all to see. Report below:
"Our 15CA 2056 ran her first official mainline trip on Thurs, 1st March hauling the Shongololo train from Nasrec back to Germiston. The short spur out of Nasrec is not the most photogenic but is extremely steeply graded and the locomotive was captured any how just leaving the spur and re joining the mainline with a crystal clear bark disturbing the peace.
What a wonderful sight and sound!"
