|Between December 1974 and July 1976 the South African Railways placed one hundred Class 34-600 EMD GT26MC diesel-electric locomotives in service. Designed by Electro-Motive Diesel, they were built by General Motors South Africa in Port Elizabeth and numbered in the range from 34-601 to 34-700. Beginning in 2005 three Class 39-000 EMD GT26CU-3 locomotives, numbers 39-001, 39-003 and 39-004, were rebuilt from wrecked Class 34-600 locomotives, numbers 34-635, 34-674 and 34-620 respectively.
