3052 looks particularly smart having been attended to very diligently for nearly two weeks by the Sandstone Heritage Trust 2-ft narrow gauge team who put aside their normal work to get this locomotive ready for David Shepherd's visit.
No. 3052 storms out of Kommandonek on the way to Ficksburg. Please note the four steel bodied coaches which had been upgraded and painted in the weeks proceeding the trip. Our thanks go to Len Huxham for doing an excellent job in this regard.

Please note the steel coaches.
