The Sandstone Heritage Trust owns the following O&K locomotives, together with an Arn Jung unit also of German origin. For the sake of this exercise we have included the Arn Jung under the same grouping as the O&K locomotives.
We have listed below the locomotives that we have available that fall into the category described above.
1. O&K number 11112 build 1925. Wheel arrangement 0-6-0. Original 500mm gauge regauge to 600mm gauge. Boiler collected from Keith Stevens this week for delivery to Bloemfontein..
2. O&K number 12140 build 1930.Wheel arrangements 0-6-0. Original 500mm gauge regauge to 600mm gauge. Boiler repairs not yet commenced.
3. O&K number 12493 build 1934.Wheel arrangements 0-6-0. Original 500mm gauge. Please note this locomotive cannot be regauged to 2-ft due to solid wheel sets. It will therefore not work on the 600mm Narrow Gauge railway at Sandstone Estates. The Trustees are considering placing it on the market to be sold to a 500mm gauge railway. The boiler is awaiting repairs.
4. Arn Jung number 847 build in 1905.Wheel arrangement 0-4-2. Original 600mm gauge. Boiler awaiting repairs. It is likely that we will prioritise this loco due to its rarity and age.
