Remarks & Notes 
The iconic 4-8-4 steamlocomotive "Red Devil" class 26 # 3450 (part of the Transnet National Collection, now maintained and operated by the Ceres Raill Company) is rounding a curve between Worcester and Over Hex on the line of the former New Cape Central Railway from Worcester to Robertson-Swellendam-Voorbai, with a 13 cars photo freight for FarRail Tours of Bernd Seiler. This most powerful narrow gauge (Cape gauge 1067 mm or 3 Ft 6 inch) steamlocomotive was rebuilt from 1979 to 1981 by David Wardale from a class 25NC (Henschel/Germany 1953). The locomotive is operational again since summer 2018 after 14 years decommission.
