Remarks & Notes 
The working life of E8075 is over, pictured here in the workshops at the Umbilo Electric Locomotive Depot in January 2011, as she was being stripped of her working parts to help keep the remaining members of her class (Class 8E - Electric Centre Cab Shunting Locomotive) working. Parts for these locomotives have become scarce in recent years and the number of those still working has reduced substantially from the original 100 that were placed in service in the early 1980s.

The red & whisker livery of the South African Railways / Suid Afrikaanse Spoorwee collection. Getting harder to find examples of this fantastic and much loved livery still in service!
