Mr. James Hefner gave me the information of this locomotive. He said. "They are Chrzanow-built ET7 0-8-0T's that have had their tanks cut down. This was probably done to reduce axle loading on light industrial track, a practice common in South Africa and elsewhere. I assume they were then mated to tenders from SYs.". Thanks for James's imfomation.
