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.
The South African Railways Class 8 4-8-0 of 1902 was a steam locomotive from the pre-Union era in the Cape of Good Hope.
In 1902 and 1903, the Cape Government Railways placed 23 8th Class steam locomotives with a 4-8-0 Mastodon type wheel arrangement in service, three on the Cape Western System, eight on the Cape Midland System and twelve on the Cape Eastern System. In 1912, when they were assimilated into the South African Railways, they were renumbered, but retained their Class 8 classification.
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
