Title:  SAR Class 16E 857 (4-6-2)
Description:  In 1935 the South African Railways placed six Class 16E steam locomotives with a 4-6-2 Pacific wheel arrangement in passenger train service. The locomotive was designed by Chief Mechanical Engineer A.G. Watson and built by Henschel and Son in Kassel, Germany. Six locomotives were delivered in 1935, numbered in the range from 854 to 859. It used rotary cam poppet valve gear driven by outside rotary shafts and had 72 inches (1,830 millimetres) diameter driving wheels, the largest ever used on any rail gauge narrower than 4 feet 8½ inches (1,440 millimetres).
