SG 78.

The Railway Pioneer Regiment was formed early in 1900 to carry out repair work on the railway line as the British made their way into the Orange Free State and farther north. One of the first tasks that the regiment accomplished was to re-bridge the Orange River, 11 days after arriving at Norval’s Point on 27 March 1900. The Boer forces only had left on 28 February and had used the Cape canceller until that date. By the time the Railway Pioneer Regiment, consisting mostly of out-of-work miners and engineers, arrived all post office equipment had disappeared with the Boer forces and the makeshift rubber stamp had to suffice.

P. O. to Queenstown was inaugurated. The section between Queenstown and Middelburg Road was called the Eastern T. P. O. and the portion between Middelburg Road and De Aar became the Northeastern T. P. O., to distinguish it from the Midland, which ran over a small portion of same section on a late train. The Eastern and Northeastern T. P. O.s were operated by staff stationed at Queenstown.
