The NBL Group has told RailAdvent that their RSH 19D 4-8-2 steam locomotive No. 2767 has been on the road moving from Creighton to Pretoria in South Africa.
The group has entered a load agreement with the Mpumalanga Rail Company who will be restoring the locomotive and will be using it for 10 years after the locomotive enters service.
The locomotive is being taken to Wonder Steam Trains for the work to be carried out and will then move to Middelburg where the Mpumalanga Rail Company.
After three years of storage at Creighton, this move is seen as a new lease of life for the locomotive.
The locomotive was built by Robert Stephenson & Hawthorns, who also had locomotive works in Darlington and Newcastle.
