Remarks & Notes 
An early winter morning, as Class 6E1, E1659, one of only a handful of her class that made it into the "Purple" Shosholoza Meyl livery, is seen here unravelling from the top balloon at Boughton with a Durban bound Shosholoza Meyl / Trans Natal, while cautiously negotiating the steep gradients on the drop down into Pietermaritzburg.
