Friends of the Rail (FOTR) Work in Progress Photos and Report
July 2001

July 2001 saw much work being carried out on 15F 3094 to get her ready to steam again. A steam test was done which revealed a couple of problems that have since been resolved. Seen below is a photo of 3094 with lagging off and being steam tested, followed by work in progress to get the insulation and lagging replaced. 3094 will undergo a final steam test before a test trip to Germiston on 28th July. A public trip to Cullinan will be held on 30th July - book now!

A couple of other pictures of work in progress on our third suburban sitter coach. When finished this will give us 3 suburban sitters, a lounge car and a compartment coach for our trains.

Finally an up-to-date picture of 19D 2650 as she stands now. Work will resume on 2650 once 3094 is back in action.
