A busy weekend over 17th-19th February resulted in some top class photographers making the trip to Sandstone Estates to see what was happening. Dennis Moore, one of the most accomplished of our photographers and the author of the magnificent book 'Sunset of Steam' featuring the dying days of steam in South Africa, both Cape Gauge and Narrow Gauge, has sent us these photographs.

Dennis, thank you for these great photographs. It is the only reward we need for organising these weekends.

Newly restored NG4 with a small mixed freight configuration. NG4 is not a small locomotive and it can therefore be double headed with some of the bigger horsepower narrow gauge locomotives at Sandstone. Here she is double headed with NGG 16, No. 153.
Again double headed, this time with our Peckett Saddle tank, No.2161
