||SAR Class 6 439 (4-6-0)
||In 1893 and 1894 the Cape Government Railways placed forty 6th Class 4-6-0 steam locomotives in service. In 1897 ten of them were sold to the Oranje-Vrijstaat Gouwermentspoorwegen. At the end of the Second Boer War in 1901, these ten became the Class 6-L1 on the Central South African Railways. In 1912, when all forty locomotives were assimilated into the South African Railways, they were renumbered in the range from 401 to 440 and classified as Class 6.
