Victoria Tramways, later Kimberley Tramways, steam tram loco 'Beaconsfield' Built by Thomas Green of Leeds it, and three other locomotives, is reputed to have been obtained from the Bradord Tramways and Omnibus Company about 1902 and re-gauged from 4ft to 3'6" by Dick Kerr and co. However Stanley King in his book on Bradford Tramways casts some doubt on this version of events. Now preserved at the Big Hole Museum in Kimberley, South Africa
