One of Sandstone’s restored locos is the ex Lorraine Gold Mine 19D number 2654. The loco is in storage at the Sandstone Bloemfontein facility under the care of Lukas Nel.

Dennis Moore photographed 2654 at Lorraine on the 22 November 1997 and sent us this short gallery from his books, “Golden Steam” and “Lorraine Gold Mine”

Dennis remarked on the pics: “As it happens this was the very last occasion on which I saw 2654 in steam.  I hope one day, I will renew acquaintance with 2654”.
