|Between October 1966 and May 1967 the South African Railways placed twenty Class 33-200 EMD GL26MC diesel-electric locomotives in service. Designed and built by General Motors Electro-Motive Division, they were delivered with high short hoods and numbered in the range from 33-201 to 33-220. After some were sold, their dynamic braking equipment, located in the high short hood, was removed by the new owners and the short hoods were rebuilt to low noses. Between 1991 and 1992 the remaining Spoornet locomotives were similarly modified and used in shunting service around East London.
