SAR Class 33-400 33-446
Title:  SAR Class 33-400 33-446
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. In 1990 forty-five of them were transferred to TransNamib, the Namibian Railways, where some have been rebuilt with reconditioned engines and renumbered from number 501 up. The locomotive was designed by General Electric and built in South Africa by Dorbyl, numbered 33-401 to 33-515.

Namibia Class 33-400
Title:  Namibia Class 33-400
Description:  The Class 33-400 series (401 to 515, all South African manufactured) entered SAR service between July 1968 and March 1970. Some were donated to Namibia upon that country's independence. TransNamib (the Namibian Railways) locos usually do not venture further south than Ariamsvlei in Namibia. These two exceptions to the rule are laying over in Upington on their way to Nigel on the East Rand for repairs after a slight mishap resulting in bent frames.
