A quick Internet search reveals that the C30AC series of diesels was supplied by General Electric to Transnet of South Africa. 203 of then were produced from 2010 onwards. Technical details can be found online...

Hi,

Thanks for the info. I cannot find any data online for the C30AC. Can you point me in the direction of the technical data you refer to?

Thanks
