Album Info:This album contains pictures of some preserved (or not) old timer goods wagons of the South African Railways (SAR). Since the two sides of nearly all wagon types are different, I treated the side on which the vacuum pipes are mounted as Side B. (Data Source: Transnet Index and Diagrams of Goods Vehicles, Part I, Issued 3/8/1966, Revised 28/2/1967.)
