    Default Looking for SAR Steam

    Does anyone have any information for finding SAR equipment, especially steam?

    I tried to find information on RSA Trainz but they seem to have "left the room"

    Thank you

    The term "RSA" (Republic of South Africa) gives it away. Confusing I know but I have taken to using "SAGR" (South Australian Government Railways - its correct full title) to distinguish it from the railways of our South African neighbours.

    RSA Trainz is a sore point which those in South Africa who ordered stuff that never appeared and presumably now is never likely to, best left in the past.

    There are African 2ft Gauge Locos on the DLS

    <kuid2:403746:634:6> ACR NGG16 No. 141 - Red
    <kuid2:403746:620:6> SAR NGG16 - 1958 Batch
    <kuid2:403746:1016:2> SAR NGG11
    <kuid2:403746:1024:1> SAR NG4
    <kuid2:403746:63:1> SAR NG Goods Van
    <kuid2:403746:708:3> SAR NG6 Lawley (Straight Frame)
    <kuid2:403746:1020:3> SAR NG6 Lawley (Drop Frame)
    <kuid2:403746:1004:2> SAR NG15
    <kuid2:403746:715:2> SAR NG6 Lawley Bogie Tender
    <kuid2:403746:713:2> SAR NG6 Lawley Tender
    <kuid2:403746:1010:1> SAR NG15 Tender Early
    <kuid2:403746:1011:1> SAR NG15 Tender Late
    <kuid2:403746:1031:1> SAR/NGR Class N
    And a few other bits.

    I made some DZ and B wagons, 2ft gauge however they have Welsh Highland branding, As in WHR instead of SAR, can be reskined by anyone if required.

    Bit confusing with SAR applying to different countries, can't say I've seen any cape gauge South African stuff, leastwise not on the DLS, may be wrong though!

    The South Australia government railway not exist as you have written, but for identification on trainz your separation purposes is ideal.

    Pauls Trainz has some good SAR steam locomotives like the Red Devil and the normal 25 Class . He also has rolling stock like coaches for the Red Devil.
    His site has warnings but I have been there a few times without problems.
    World peace is a bit far off, lets work at Trainz peace for now
