South African Class 3e
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! In 1948 the South African Railways (SAR), later renamed Spoornet and then Transnet Freight Rail (TFR), placed 28 Class 3E locomotives in service. The South African Class 3E 3kV DC electric locomotive entered service in 1948. Designed and built by Metropolitan-Vickers, a total of 28 Class 3E's were delivered. In the steam era South African steam locomotives bore unlettered numbers, while electric locomotives bore numbers with an "E" prefix and diesel-electric locomotives numbers with a "D" prefix. Narrow gauge locomotives and most narrow gauge rolling stock bore the letters "NG," for example "Class NG15" for tender locomotives or "Class NG G13" for Garratts, to distinguish them from 3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) Cape gauge locomotives that may have shared the same locomotive number.
