RN 217 - Feldbahn moves to Sandstone Estates to commence steam trials

On her South African home railway for the first time in over 90 years. As soon as the weather cleared, the loco was offloaded and left in the sunlight to chill out before steam trials begin - Photograph courtesy of Hester Papenfus
Our Feldbahn arrives at its new home IN THE SNOW which it not doubt remembers from its days behind German lines.
The Feldbahn which took our Bloemfontein workshops a little over a year to totally rebuid has been loaded and is now at the running shed at Hoekfontein to commence its steam trials.
