Remarks & Notes 
An early summer evening (18:00hrs) at Bayhead, the largest goods receiving and dispatching yard in Durban, and E8091, in her wonderful old South African Railway livery, with her working mate in “blue” Spoornet livery behind her, have just been shutdown for the day. They are two examples of their Class (Class 8E Centre Cab Electric Shunting Locomotives) that remain in service as of January 2015. Originally 100 of these locomotives were placed in service between 1983 and 1985, but their days are numbered now, with many of them having already been withdrawn from service / scrapped - spares are a problem.

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!
