Description:  Between July 1968 and March 1970 the South African Railways placed one hundred and fifteen Class 33-400 GE U20C diesel-electric locomotives in service. In 1990 forty-five of them were transferred to TransNamib, the Namibian Railways, where some have been rebuilt with reconditioned engines and renumbered from number 501 up. The locomotive was designed by General Electric and built in South Africa by Dorbyl, numbered 33-401 to 33-515.
