Welcome to SAR Steam, your online resource for everything pertaining to South African Railways steam. As some of you may know, I have been selling mechanical locomotive drawings and e-Books for quite a few years. This has really helped a lot of people build their own live steam locomotives in pretty much any gauge. The only thing that has always let me down has been the postal system, and getting the drawings to you as fast as possible. What I have now done, is I have uploaded my entire library so that once you purchase drawings or e-Books, they will be instantly available for you to download.
ALL PRODUCTS ARE NOW INSTANTLY DOWNLOADABLE.
In 1909, the Natal Government Railways placed the world’s first true Mountain type locomotive in service when five Class B 4-8-2 tender locomotives were commissioned. Another 25 were placed in service in 1911. In 1912, when they were assimilated into the South African Railways, they were renumbered and designated Class 3. The Mountain wheel arrangement went on to become the most numerous steam locomotive wheel configuration in use in South Africa
I can only thank the team at SAR STEAM for making these drawing available to the public so we can continue to enjoy the rich steam history of South Africa
