Remarks & Notes 
The "month-end Fridays only" Shosholoza Meyl "Tourism" from Johannesburg to East London is seen southbound near Meyerton behind class 6E1 E1593 in original SAR red livery. The train is ferrying two new coaches to East London for Kei Rail, an Eastern Cape provincial government initiative that has seen passenger rail service reintroduced between Amabele and Mthata.

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!
