South African Railways Locomotive plate - Red Devil - Replica

The Class 26, popularly known as the Red Devil, is a 4-8-4 steam locomotive that was rebuilt from a Class 25NC locomotive by mechanical engineer David Wardale from England while in the employ of the South African Railways. The rebuilding took place at the Salt River Works in Cape Town and was based on the principles developed by Argentinian mechanical engineer L.D. Porta

These extensive modifications justified reclassification and the locomotive became the first and only Class 26, although the locomotive’s original Class 25NC number 3450 was retained. The Class 26 number plates, builder’s plate and the Salt River rebuild plate that were attached to the cab sides at the time have since been replaced with plates inscribed "Transnet National Collection".
