Remarks & Notes 
A class 6E1 Bo-Bo 3kV electric in original South African Railways red livery, hauls a "pick-up" (wayside) freight northwards across the Vaal River at Fourteen Streams. The 2nd and 4th wagons are covered in large tarpaulins, which were numbered and had to be accounted for by Station Masters where the wagons were loaded or unloaded at their stations. The consist also includes some four-wheel wagons, which were known as "shorts". Both the tarpaulins and the shorts have long since disappeared from the railway scene in South Africa, while pick-up freights are also few and far between these days.

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!
