Sandstone Steam Gala Monday 26 March 2012

This was another very interesting day.

In the morning, the Kerr Stuart “Tamar” 0-4-2ST reappeared together with the Natal Government Railways NG4 Kerr Stuart 4-6-2T.

At lunchtime, two tiny locomotives, a 0-4-0T Decauville rescued from Angola and a Kerr Stuart “Wren” 0-4-0ST put in an appearance. The Decauville ran a small passenger train out to the Grootdraai Loop.
