Hunslet 0-4-2T 2075 of 1940 supplied to Chaka'’s Kraal Sugar Estates, Natal, South Africa. Built to an Avonside design.

The locomotive was repatriated in 1981 for the North Gloucestershire Narrow Gauge Railway. Following restoration at Ashchurch and Toddington it visited the WHRL for the gala held on 28-30 May 1988, when it hauled demonstration freight trains.

Following its brief sojourn at Porthmadog the locomotive was based at the South Tynedale Railway at Alston, Cumbria until 1999 when it returned to Toddington.
