Remarks & Notes 
A rare opportunity to see E1101 in front of Road Knowledge Coach No. 40117, as they leave their overnight staging position adjacent to the main entrance of Durban Harbour, to get a very early start on a long day's training. E1101 is a significantly refurbished (2007) Class 5E1 Series 5 electric unit, originally built in 1966. She and her sister, E1102, are now used by Transnet Freight Rail for road knowledge training purposes. For this purpose they are used to push Coach No. 40117, which is equipped with a classroom type setup, full driving controls and large viewing windows at the ends.

Rare South African photographs (older and newer) on RailPictures.Net, where the potential to recreate them either no longer exists for any number of reasons, or the chances of another opportunity are very slim or non existent!
