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.
