SAR NG1 (4-6-2T)
Title:  SAR NG1 (4-6-2T)
Description:  The first narrow-gauge line of the Natal Government Railways was constructed from Estcourt to Weenen. Two small 4-6-2T side-tank locomotives, designed by D.A. Hendrie and built by Hunslet Engine Company, were acquired for this line in 1907. They were numbered NG1 and NG2 by the South African Railways in 1912, but were not classified. Both were sold to Angola in 1915. NG1 is now part of the Sandstone Heritage Trust's fleet of narrow gauge locomotives.

Title:  SAR Class NG4 16 (4-6-2T)
Description:  In 1911 the Natal Government Railways placed the first two of seven 4-6-2T Pacific narrow gauge tank steam locomotives in service. Five more were delivered to the South African Railways in 1913 and 1914. They were all built by Kerr, Stuart and Company and numbered in the range from NG10 to NG16. When a system of grouping narrow gauge locomotives into classes was eventually introduced somewhere between 1928 and 1930, they were all classified as Class NG4.

SAR Class 16CR 805 (4-6-2)
Title:  SAR Class 16CR 805 (4-6-2)
Description:  In November 1917 the South African Railways placed ten Class 16B steam locomotives with a 4-6-2 Pacific wheel arrangement in passenger train service. Designed by D.A. Hendrie and built by North British Locomotive Company, the locomotives were numbered in the range from 802 to 811. During the 1930s all ten locomotives were reboilered with Watson Standard no. 2B boilers and reclassified to Class 16CR. After its retirement one, no. 805, was actually dereboilered with a dummy boiler to represent its original Class 16B condition, being the locomotive on which long time South African Minister of Transport Ben Schoeman started his Railway career at Braamfontein as a stoker during the 1930s.
