Tandrad Locomotief, NZASM
A cogwheel locomotive, NZASM
The Netherlands-South African Railway Company (NZASM) was founded in 1884 in Amsterdam and built, among other, a railway line between Pretoria and Lourenco Marques, the present day capital of Mozambique, Maputo. This ‘Oosterlijn’ (Eastern Line) was strategically important for the Transvaal Republic as the transport of imported and exported products no longer had to take place over British territory.
