||SAR Class 6A 482 (4-6-0)
||In 1896 and 1897 the Cape Government Railways placed a second batch of fifty 6th Class 4-6-0 steam locomotives in service. During the Second Freedom War four were transferred to the Imperial Military Railways on loan, and in 1907 one was sold to the Benguela Railway in Angola. In 1912, when the remaining forty-nine locomotives were assimilated into the South African Railways, they were renumbered in the range from 441 to 489 and reclassified to Class 6A.
