The class 31-000 were the first diesel electric locomotives placed in service by SAR in 1958. They are the GE U12B, and were imported from the US. They were originally classified as 1-DE.

As delivered the locos had shunters steps on either side of the pilot face, and the boarding steps did not extend to the bottom of the pilot. Later they were modified with the shunters steps being removed and the boarding steps extended to the bottom of the pilot. We have modelled both variants as Early and Late eras

The model is supplied powered or unpowered and in 16.5mm or 12mm gauge. It includes couplers, screws and separately detail parts (Horns and vacuum pipes). It is DCC ready (8pin NEM socket) and directional lighting can be added by adding LEDs to the internal circuit board and optical fibre. It is supplied unweighted to reduce postage costs, we suggest using car tyre stick-on balancing weights to add weight to the model. The modeller will need to supply paint, decals and window glazing (Overhead Projector film works well for this)
