Designed by General Electric, they were built in two batches by the South African General Electric-Dorman Long Locomotive Group (SA GE-DL, later Dorbyl).

Description:  Judging from the flotsam on the loco, floodwater must have flowed virtually over 35-403 after the accident. The remains of the cab of 35-408 is visible at left.

SAR Derailment
Title:  SAR Derailment
Description:  It's hard to believe that three shunter crew members emerged from the third loco of the foursome with only minor injuries. 35-403 will probably also be taken to the Transwerk shops in Bloemfontein for repairs.
