    Said railway bicycle was on view at the Schanskop Fort in Pretoria. Not sure if it is still there. Doubt if there more than a few as railway lines weren't all that widespread.

    Sadly the meaning of the medals also pass away with the owner. The owner's descendants passing also removes the value we place on them. Eventually they all get lost.
