||SAR Class NG G16 113 (2-6-2+2-6-2)
||Between 1937 and 1968 the South African Railways placed thirty-four Class NG G16 Garratt articulated steam locomotives with a 2-6-2+2-6-2 wheel arrangement in service on the Avontuur Railway and on the Natal narrow gauge lines. They were built in five batches by Société Anonyme John Cockerill in Belgium, Beyer, Peacock and Company in England and Hunslet-Taylor in Germiston, and numbered in the ranges 85 to 88, 109 to 116, 125 to 131, 137 to 143 and 149 to 156. In 1989 and 1990 two of them, numbers 141 and 155, were rebuilt by the Alfred County Railway using technology similar to that used in the Class 26 Red Devil and reclassified to Class NG G16A.
