This locomotive is a class 15F, which is being dismantled by the scrap dealers into different material categories. It’s sad to think that this beauty, weighing in at an incredible 113 tons was once the pride and joy of some lucky driver.

The Class 15F locos saw service over most of the South African rail system as well as Rhodesia where a number were on hire to Rhodesia Railways during 1978 and 1979.

It’s hard to believe that such a majestic beast could be desecrated like this without a second thought.
