SAR Class 34-500 34-538         
Between 1974 and 1977 Iscor placed forty-four GE U26C diesel-electric locomotives in service on the Sishen-Saldanha iron ore line. The locomotives were designed by General Electric and built in three batches by the South African General Electric-Dorman Long Locomotive Group (SA GE-DL, later Dorbyl). In 1977 and 1978 thirty-nine of them were transferred to the South African Railways, where they were initially reclassified to Class 34-400 ex Iscor and renumbered in the range from 34-501 to 34-539. They later became commonly known as Class 34-500.
