Update on O&K 0-6-0T 11112/1925
Ex Companhia Do Assucar De Angola
Originally 500mm gauge converted to 600mm gauge
Following our recent update on O&K 12140, sister locomotive No. 11112 underwent its steam test on 4th June. Apart from the boiler (which required a major rebuild) only the frames are as received from Angola with new tanks and cab constructed from scratch. All the boiler mountings have also been newly fabricated. The locomotive will now undergo further attention prior to final commissioning.
Here is a short video clip of 11112 on its first (short) test run. It is believed the locomotive last saw service in 1969.
