Remarks & Notes 
SAR Class 8E, E8056, in her original South African Railway livery (Red & Whiskers) is hard at work shunting a Metrorail 5M Motor Coach at New Durban Yard. E8056 is one of a hundred (excluding an additional seven that were built for the mining industry) in her class who were placed in service during 1983 and 1985 as modern electric shunting locomotives with centralised cabs that have two driving stations. With the non availability of spares the future of the Class 8Es is not too certain, with many having already succumbed to the shortage.
