Remarks & Notes 
With the sun just making its appearance in time and a fine spray coming off the Indian Ocean, Class 37 Diesels, 37-048 & 37-044, pass through Umkomaas on the KwaZulu Natal South Coast on their run through to Durban with Transnet's Phelophepa Health Train from Port Shepstone. The train was scheduled to be in Durban at 7am for a routine Carriage & Wagon inspection, before continuing on to Matubatuba, a small town just north of Richards Bay. "The Phelophepa Health Train brings health and hope to thousands of rural South Africans in need of access to health care facilities. This eighteen coach train, with its nineteen resident staff members, fondly known as the “miracle train”, carries the most modern medical equipment on board. Phelophepa is indeed a journey of hope that continues to make a history of caring." - information text taken directly off the Transnet Foundation Website.
