SAR South African Railways
A pair of South African Railways class 15CA mixed-traffic 4-8-2s power a heavy fast freight departing from Pienaars River / Pienaarsrivier on the Pretoria - Pietersburg route - 21st September 1968. Nos. 2838 and 2824 had been built by the North British Locomotive Company under Queens Park, Glasgow works numbers 23801 and 23787/1928 respectively. Whilst this important class had been sourced initially from the USA - from ALCO and later Baldwin - for express duties on the Cape mainline, all further orders were met by the European builders Breda Milan and NBL.
