Following withdrawal, # 736 was
offered for sale by tender. Dusty
Durrant considered the prices
being fetched by other 20th Class
locomotives and put in a bid of
around US$24,000.

Dusty became the proud owner of
a 20th Class, which he stored in
the Bulawayo Railway Museum. On
his death the locomotive was given
to the Museum.

# 736 was removed from the
Museum in 2003/4 and is now
reportedly rusting away behind the
steam shed.

Minutes of the FoBRM meeting  
held on 02 October 2004 state that
the Chairman was waiting to see
the NRZ General  Manager
regarding  a  proposal from a
Dutch enthusiast  - Nothing has
been heard of the proposal since
then.
