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.
On 15 December 1924, after an official tour of investigation to the United States of America by G.E. Titren, the Superintendent Motive Power of the South African Railways (SAR), an order was placed with the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia for four experimental locomotives, two of which were of a 4-6-2 Pacific type wheel arrangement. These locomotives were all delivered in 1925. The two Pacifics were designated Class 16D and numbered 860 and 861.
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
