Rhodesia Railways DE 1207

DE 1207 is one of 35 diesel locomotives built for Rhodesia Railways by English Electric and the Vulcan Foundry, Newton-le-Willows in 1958. Only two of them are known to have survived, and this particular example is the only one in South Africa. And while she is reasonably intact she would need a lot of money to restore.  She is currently housed at Reefsteamers in Germiston

34-099 and 34-466

One fine day in Magaliesburg, while waiting for the Reefsteamers train to leave, a pair of diesels arrived with cement trucks which they stacked in lines next to the train before being decoupled. It appeared as if 34-466 had broken down and both were shunted into a siding and shut down.
