Progress has been made on 19D steam locomotive No. 2767, with the overhaul continuing in South Africa.
Nick / The NBL Group has sent photos to RailAdvent of the overhaul progress being made on the locomotive, which is owned by shareholders of the 2767 Locomotive Appeal.
The overhaul is being completed by Wonder Steam at the Hermanstad depot near Pretoria.
Progress on the overhaul has seen a boiler test completed which means that we should see 2767 in steam again in 2021.
Mpumalanga Rail Company are funding the overhaul of the locomotive and will use it on a series of trains from Middelburg to Dullstroom.
The locomotive has been stored for three years in Creighton, so the new agreement is seen as a new lease of life for the steam locomotive.
The locomotive was built by Robert Stephenson & Hawthorns, who also had locomotive works in Darlington and Newcastle.
We should be seeing more progress on 2767 soon, what do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
