Between August 1978 and July 1980 the South African Railways placed fifty-eight Class 34-800 EMD GT26MC diesel-electric locomotives in service. Designed by Electro-Motive Diesel, they were built in two batches by General Motors South Africa in Port Elizabeth and numbered in the range from 34-801 to 34-858. Beginning in 2006 two Class 39-000 EMD GT26CU-3 locomotives, numbers 39-002 and 39-005, were rebuilt from wrecked Class 34-800 locomotives, numbers 34-838 and 34-829 respectively.
