||Spoornet Class 39-000 39-001
||In 2005 Transwerk commenced a project at its Bloemfontein shops of rebuilding one hundred existing Class 34-600 and 34-800 EMD GT26MC and Class 37-000 EMD GT26M2C locomotives to new Class 39-000 EMD GT26CU-3 locomotives for Spoornet. Only five were eventually rebuilt and placed in service between April 2006 and 2009, numbered in the range from 39-001 to 39-005.
No. 39-001 was rebuilt from Class 34-600 no. 34-635.
