Remarks & Notes 
Fifty three years after being delivered to the South African Railways from the USA, this class 31 Bo-Bo (GE U12B) survives in service with Sheltam, but rebuilt with a low short hood. Previously Sheltam # 22 (see photo ID 340514), she was overhauled in 2010 and renumbered 1202. A passing father and child stop their bicycle on the road bridge above, to watch 1202 passing by, hauling waste from a dump near Harmony's No.2 shaft, to the exchange siding with Harmony Gold.
