Remarks & Notes 
Twenty years have passed since the old South African Railways (SAR) became Spoornet (and more recently, Transnet Freight Rail), yet a number of Class 6E1 electrics remain in their original SAR red livery with yellow striping. It was a real bonus to get two of them working the Cape Town - Johannesburg "Premier Classe" train, seen here passing the home signal at Suurbekom.

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!
