SAR Class NG6 106 (4-4-0)
Title:  SAR Class NG6 106 (4-4-0)
Description:  Between 1895 and 1898 Pauling and Company placed forty-two Falcon F2 and F4 tender steam locomotives with a 4-4-0 American wheel arrangement in service on the narrow gauge line that was being constructed for the Beira Railway in Mozambique. In 1915 thirteen of these locomotives were acquired by the Union Defence Force for use in South Africa, where they replaced locomotives that had been commandeered for the war effort in German South West Africa during World War I. At the end of the war these thirteen locomotives were staged. In 1921 they were placed back in service by the South African Railways. When a system of grouping narrow gauge locomotives into classes was eventually introduced somewhere between 1928 and 1930, they were classified as Class NG6.
