We did say in the book that there was some query as to the identities of the 5 ex Angola O&K's so now we have solved one. As we strip and examine the others I am sure we will find more info.

I may have given you incorrect information before unfortunately. The lists I checked before were extracted from the OK lists by a prominent German enthusiast who is usually vey precise. However, I had subsequently, electronically re-searched the full OK lists myself using my knowledge of all the local spellings and possible mis-spellings and have found some more locos of which 10311 is indeed one - in fact there are five OK 0-4-0T.
