Volume 1 in a two-volume series that describes nearly 100 years of South African steam locomotives, covering practically every type of locomotive and variant that ever operated. This volume opens with the first locomotive to reach South Africa, a small 0-4-2 well tank brought out from England in 1859 and then goes on to the locomotive history of all railroads (other than 2' narrow gauge) that existed before the Act of Union in 1910. The railroads covered include the Capetown-Wellington, the Natal, the Cape Government Railways, the Metropolitan & Suburban, the New Cape Central and Kowie, the Nederlandsche Zuid-Afrikan Spoorweg Maatschappij, the Pretoria-Pietersburg, the Selati and Ermelo, the Imperial Military Railways of the Boer War and the Central South African Railways. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos, diagrams and maps. 144 pages with index.
