Remarks & Notes 
Luxury safari train operator Rovos Rail has purchased a number of ex- South African Railways (SAR) class 5E1 Bo-Bo electrics for use on their trains out of Pretoria. Repainted in Rovos Rail green livery with SAR-style yellow striping, two of the 5E1's sit in the yard at Capital Park depot on a sunny winter morning.

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!

From a "hint" of "Bee" (NKP 765), colorful "Bees" (KCS), "Bees" w/ attitude, to "Bees" that "sting" your eyes, in their own way they have "Bee" on display! Equipment that "Buzzes" wearing Yellow & Black! ("Bees" can still "Bee" entering this "hive"!)
