Despite the incredibly low winter temperatures (-12° recorded in the last few days) work continues in Bloemfontein.

The never to be completed project (NGG11) is however moving along.


The picture above shows repairs being done on NGG11, No. 52, front tube plate of the boiler.


The NGG11's outer fire box is being addressed with a new blowdown cock fitted.

Switching to O&K, No. 12691, work continues.


Look carefully – there are two men working on this boiler.
