Locomotives South Africa SAR/SAS


Lima introduced their South African outline in 1973. New models were added quickly. Starter Sets contained some rather strange versions of American and European locomotives. Many of the rarest and most collectable Lima models are from the South African outline, i. e. the Metroblitz and the Swiss RBe-railcar in SAR-colours.
