SAR Class 1 1276 (4-8-0)
Title:  SAR Class 1 1276 (4-8-0)
Description:  In 1904 the Natal Government Railways placed fifty Hendrie B Class 4-8-0 Mastodon steam locomotives in service, built by North British Locomotive Company. Six of them were modified to a 4-8-2 Mountain wheel arrangement in 1906. In 1912, when the remaining forty-four 4-8-0 locomotives were assimilated into the South African Railways, they were renumbered in the number range from 1245 to 1288 and classified as Class 1.
