That's a real iconic piece of history over there. Didn't manage to see it in 2015 but I think there is information suitable for modellers still on

www.zelmeroz.com

if thats a bit wrong then google zelmeroz. There's a lot of resources there inlcuding a lot of Jim Fainges drawings.

updating with an "edit" I have had another look at the zelmeroz site and a lot of the stuff seems to be missing whilst they are re hashing the site--- sorry for the misinformation.

If I remember right, Pretoria's oddity started with the frames of quite an attractive Manning Waddel steam loco. Purchased by the manufacturer's of the combustion engine variation as a quick start to the project.

Not as I recall -- no worse than any other coach (but it might have helped being in the 1st Class section on very deep leather covered cushioned seats    Wink )

The loco itself only has one driven axle with a leading single axle -- the front of the coach rests on loco, with a 4-wheeled bogie at the back -- so a sort-of 2-2-4 I guess ?
