SAR Class 33-400 33-505
Title:  SAR Class 33-400 33-505
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. The locomotive was designed by General Electric and built in South Africa by the South African General Electric-Dorman Long Locomotive Group (SA GE-DL, later Dorbyl). They were numbered in the range from 33-401 to 33-515. In 1990 forty-five of them were transferred to TransNamib, the Namibian Railways, where some have since been rebuilt with reconditioned engines and renumbered from number 501 up.
