The James Hall Museum of Transport 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. Some are 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.
