NGG16 number 113, built by Beyer Peacock in 1939, has been moved to Sandstone’s Bloemfontein Workshops for re tubing. The locomotive was acquired from the Midmar project in 1998 but did not enter traffic at Sandstone until February15th 2003 after a full overhaul in the Hoekfontein Workshops. The locomotive was withdrawn from traffic in April 2017.
