Between 1937 and 1949 the South African Railways placed two hundred and thirty-five Class 19D steam locomotives wirh a 4-8-2 Mountain wheel arrangement in service. Between 1951 and 1953 thirty-three more were built for other operators like the Rhodesian and Angolan railways and the Nkana and Wankie mines. The Class 19D, nicknamed "Dolly", was very similar to its predecessor Class 19C, but W.A.J. Day specified piston valves and Walschaerts valve gear instead of RC Poppet valve gear. The cylinders were redesigned with straighter steam ports, while the valve gear itself was revamped with a longer steam lap and greater travel. In all other respects they were identical to the Class 19C.
