The KS-5-D driving carriages were first placed in service in 1969, with further orders placed over the years until 1986. All carriages were manufactured by UCW in South Africa, making them part of the 5M2A series. They had small guards compartment between the drivers cab and the parcel van section and a toilet at the trailing end. The did not have traction motors or pantographs and were purely a driving trailer. They could be found on the Reef and in Natal.

They were produced without heating gear

They can be divided roughly into 2 eras, Early and Late as follows:
    Small round headlight
    Windows in cab front door and parcel van rear door
    Windows in cab front door and parcel van rear door deleted.
    Twin sealed beam headlights

The models feature sprung inter-carriage foot connectors, this is a feature exclusive to SARMODEL.

The models are supplied unweighted to reduce shipping cost. Weight can be added with stick-on tyre balancing weights. We recommend overhead projector film for glazing. All that is required to complete the model is paint, decals and 0.6mm nickel-silver wire for handrails and busbars.
