Remarks & Notes 
The first of this class into the PRASA livery! E1603 is a Class 6E1 Series 5 electric locomotive, that originally entered service in 1976, with what was then the South African Railways. Now falling under the PRASA (Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa) umbrella, she (along with five others of her type) has been in Durban at Transnet Engineering undergoing refurbishing and a repaint into the PRASA "blue" livery. It is believed that E1603 (along with the other five) will be heading off to work in the Western Cape once their refurbishing and track tests are complete.

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!
