Remarks & Notes 
Six Class 19E electric locomotives, headed by 19 075, are seen here working a 200 wagon coal train (empties) through Ulundi Station on an extremely hot and humid day. Named as Ulundi (The high place), by the then king of the Zulus, King Cetshwayo in 1873, Ulundi was once the capital of Zululand and later the capital of the Bantustan of Kwazulu. Col. André Kritzinger, in his fantastic Wikipedia research work (the free online Encyclopedia), where he covers the details (in tremendous depth), of all the South African locomotive types / classes / series, included the following comments on the Class 19E locomotives. “The South African Class 19E of 2009 is a South African electric locomotive from the Transnet Freight Rail era. In 2009 Transnet Freight Rail placed the first of 110 new Class 19E single cab dual voltage 3 kV DC and 25 kV AC electric locomotives with a Bo-Bo wheel arrangement in service on the Coalink line from Ermelo to Richards Bay.”
