After the above photo was taken FCAF No.2 'Ing L.D.Porta was repainted in a deep blue livery, as had long been intended. Red was only meant to last a short while as the loco was tuned, but such is the world of railways! Here No.2 sits in the platform at Estacion Fin del Mundo. Behind the loco on the right is the steel work for the extended workshop and running shed then under construction. 22 November 2006 © Sergio Barral

FCAF No.2 'Ing L.D.Porta approaches La Macarena with a return train. As can be seen the train is empty - this is often the case with return workings. It is normal for bus loads of tourists to be dropped at the start of the line, then take a one way trip into the National Park where the buses collect them before heading further into the park. At peak times the empty return workings are worked back to Estacion Fin del Mundo as quickly as regulations allow to collect the next train load of passengers. 22 November 2006 © Sergio Barral

The train is made up of 7 vehicles, a load beyond the capacity of No.2 in original form (when named 'Nora').

Mount Washington Cog Railway No.9

Mount Washington Cog Railway No.9 'Waumbek' sets off for the mountain. When this photograph was taken the locomotive had a Lempor exhaust nozzle and a number of other improvements. As can be seen combustion was not perfect, a function of the original design rather than the work undertaken. Despite the less than perfect combustion fuel consumption was substantially reduced. 18 July 2005. © N.A.H. Day

South African Railways 19D 2644

2644 was the first locomotive modified by David Wardale. The work was fairly simple and proved to be a good learning project for what was to come later....

South African Railways 25NC 3454

This machine was given a transversely mounted double-Lempor exhaust ejector arrangement following the work of of David Wardale. No other work is believed to have been undertaken on this machine other than extended exhaust deflectors. It is thought the double Lempor arrangement follows the dimensions of that fitted to 3450. If true this going some way to explain why the locomotive carries fuel over from the firebed at a fearsome rate, something the webmaster has firsthand experience of. 3450's system was designed for a locomotive with very different combustion conditions. 3454 with an identical Lempor would be subject to too high a smokebox, and thus firebox, vacuum. The locomotive's combustion and exhaust system are out of balance.

25NC 3454 crosses another 25NC, 3488, near Graaspan. The transverse double chimney on 3454 and the standard arrnagement on 3488 is clearly visible. 02 May 1991. © Richard Niven

As with most rack locos these machines have reduction gearing. From this gearing is driven many other items on the loco. The central valve on the boiler is the connection for the pre-heater/standby heater supplied with these locomotives. It allows the oil firing to be turned off but pressure maintained by criculating the boiler water via an external electric heater. 19 October 2007. © Brian Bane
