Remarks & Notes 
The iconic "Red Devil" 26 # 3450 of the Transnet National Collection, now leased and operated by the Ceres Rail Company, is tackling the 2.5 % grade up to Mowers summit (highest point of the line with about 380 meter a.s.l.) with a 13 car photo freight for FarRail Tours of Bernd Seiler. The 4-8-4 "Northern" was rebuilt between 1979 and 1981 by mechanical engineer David Wardale from the UK, according the principles of argentain engineer Livio Dante Porta (1922 to 2003), well known for his innovative modifications to existing locomotive systems in order to obtain better performance and energy efficiency, and reduced pollution. The original locomotive was a class 25NC (non condenser) built by Henschel/Kassel/Germany in 1953.
