Hlobane Colliery 4-8-2T No. 5 passes beneath conveyor belts leading to the wash plant and loading areas - 5th July 1969. The identity of this 4-8-2T is a little uncertain but the Vryheid Railway Coal & Iron Company had obtained a 4-8-2T direct from NBL [20555/1914] that had originally carried the number "1" at the Hlobane coal mine.
