Cymdeithas Rheilffordd Eryri,
also known as the Welsh Highland Railway Society,
is currently restoring to service
the NG15 class narrow gauge locomotive number 134,
formerly of South African Railways.
This website is tracking
the restoration of the locomotive
as it is brought back into active service.
The locomotive is being restored at Dinas,
just outside Caernarfon in North Wales,
for use on the Welsh Highland Railway
where there are already a number of other
ex South African Railways locomotives in operation
in the form of NGG16 class Garratts.
Rather than a ‘cosmetic’ restoration
the locomotive is being given a thorough rebuild
and this involves changing a number of features
in order to make the locomotive more suitable
for use on the Welsh Highland Railway.
