Sandstone sells 3'6" rail trolley to Knysna based preservation group.
A Wickham rail trolley that has been in the possession of the Sandstone Heritage Trust for over 10-years has been sold to a preservation group on the Garden Route. Details of the machine are as follows:
Model: Type 40 Mk 11
Serial No: 10444
SAR Running No: RT 1717.
Due to the inability to obtain any responses to various initiatives concerning the opening of the Eastern Free State Bethlehem to Bloemfontein line, coupled with the fact that the a number of our key commercial sidings have recently been dismantled by Transnet, this means that Sandstone's interest in 3'6" is somewhat in decline.
