1903 The first report was issued by the Transvaal Government on the working of the Central South African Railways since the organisation was formed, i.e. since the railways of the Transvaal and Orange River Colony came under British Control. New lines had been opened and further works were proposed as immediately necessary for coping with "the enormous expansion and actively increasing traffic to the Rand goldfields."[1]

1910 As a result of the formation of the Union of South Africa, all the railways and ports were brought under the control of government-appointed Commissioners. The overall organisation was referred to as South African Railways and Harbours[2]
