Arn Jung 847 nears completion.

Update October 2012

It is always a joy when a locomotive suddenly takes shape and looks like it should look.  It is a testament to Lukas Nel and his skilled team that this abandoned locomotive from the Angolan bush could emerge as good as new.

The injectors and oil piping has now been fitted and coupled.

Lukas Nel has advised that subject to boiler tests and normal pre delivery checks the Arn Jung loco is likely to be in full operational order by the Stars of Sandstone in May next year.

Lukas has done an astonishing job on this locomotive bearing in mind the parlous state in which we found this locomotive in Angola.  If anyone would like to make their thoughts known to Lukas please feel free to e-mail him at the following e-mail address: This email address is being protected from spambots.
