Yes, those chaires do swivel, and as can be seen the driver can operate from either side of the cab- helpful when shunting. That last loco is known as an "Electro- Diesel" because it can either get power from overhead catinary or change over to a diesel motor.TrainNut said:I find the floor plan view on the very bottom interesting. Do those chairs swivel to face forwards?, or do you really sit at an angle like that when operating the locomotive? Rack this up in the really dumb question section.
In Order of appearance: 31= U12B, 32= (1st Series) U18C1 (2nd Series) U20C1,Triplex said:What are the manufacturer designations of these? I'm not so good with export models.
The second 8-axle type (the one with no SAR/Spoornet class designation given) is a U20C1, correct?
Considering that class 34.000 is GE and class 34.200 is EMD, they look very much alike.
I think you might be confusing the 35-000 for the 34-200.
Maybe I am... I thought each data box corresponded to the engine below it. I know a little about GE exports, but next to nothing about GM/EMD exports. Now that I look, I can see that both engines I was talking about look like EMDs.Class 34= (GE Type) U26C (GM Type) GT26MC
