Initially engine numbering on the three systems were preceded respectively by the letters "W", "M" (eg series M44-M49 below) and "E". They had side tenders, with the back bunker of the original Cape 1st-Class removed, the frames shortened, and a six-wheeled tender fitted as standard.

These more powerful locomotives were first introduced in 1880 to cope with the increasing traffic and heavier loads to the interior.
The locomotive was in CGR/OVGS service before becoming SAR stock. This photo may be compared with the historical photo below - which was taken more than a century before.

Originally, in 1873, the railways in the Cape was under one management, but owing to the great distances involved, and the fact that the railways at Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, and East London were not connected, it was decided in 1875 to split the control up into three systems: the Cape Western, Cape Midlands and Cape Eastern. They were build by in 1881 by Neilsons as works Nos 2680-2685.
