Remarks & Notes 
Unfortunately the weather did not play along for this rare occasion when two of PRASA's brand new Class 18E main line passenger haulers, 18-431 & 18-430, visited Kelso on the KwaZulu Natal South Coast. Pictured here at the Umgababa Beach Crossing (booms apparently out of order) on the return trip to Durban, they had been working a special ballast train down the South Coast - the line maintained by Metrorail, which falls under the PRASA (Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa) umbrella.

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!
