SAR South African Railways
Two South African Railways class 14CRB 4-8-2s double-head an Eastern Cape freight train on the Umtata line at Komga - 6th July 1968. Nos. 2000 and 1992 were both built by the Montreal Locomotive Works under works numbers 60555 and 60547/1919 respectively. A variant of the earlier class 14 series, the 14C type was ordered from Canada due to supply difficulties in Europe following WWI. Its complex class suffix comes from a number of modifications made over the years: the "R" signifies reboilering with the SAR Standard No. 2 boiler; the "B" for rebalancing to reduce hammerblow when running at speed and allow operation over 60lb rail on branchline duties.
