The James Hall Museum has a world-renowned collection of steam vehicles on display. It includes rollers, wagons, jib cranes, a bus and a tractor all powered by steam, and some are still in working order!
The Sentinel steam wagon was used on the mines to transport coal from the bunkers to the shafts, and to take scrap to the salvage yards.
A Famous steam tractor ‘Texas Jack”, also used on the Witwatersrand mines, is in working condition and can be seen running on the first Sunday of each month at the Museum.
Other exhibits include vintage agricultural tractors and a pont used to transport riders, their wagons and oxen across the crocodile-infested Komati River. The pont had been buried for over 70 years when it was dug up and brought to the Museum. The anchor comes from Norval’s Pont on the Orange River.
