Plinthed Locomotives

There are quite a few plinthed locos in South Africa, but they are really an endangered species if the current rate of scrap metal theft is anything to go by. A number of people contributed to this page, and I would really like to thank Terry Cawood, Clinton Hattingh, Peter Moss and Ronnie Lovemore for their contributions. (“JHTM Johannesburg” refers to the James Hall Museum of Transport in the South of Johannesburg) 

The definitive work on Plinthed Locos just has to be Piet Conradies exhaustive website which may be found at Old Steam locomotives in South Africa
