Uitenhage Railway Museum

These images of the Uitenhage Railway Museum are courtesy of Ronnie Lovemore, and were taken in December 2011. Information on SAR 4684 courtesy of Carlos Das Neves Vieira and the SA Transpotters group on Facebook.  The museum can be found at Google Earth co-ordinates   33° 46.219’S   25° 23.934’E, but it is not known what state it is in at the time of writing. Unfortunately at the time these images were taken the museum was in a very poor condition.
