Remarks & Notes 
Private safari train operator Rovos Rail has purchased a number of former South African Railways class 5E1 3kV DC Bo-Bo electric locomotives, to work its trains in Gauteng province. On a beautiful summer afternoon, two of these spotlessly clean loco's, repainted in Rovos green livery, with a variation of the characteristic yellow S.A.R. striping, are seen working a Pretoria to Cape Town train, crossing the Sesmylspruit (Six Mile Creek) steel truss bridge south of Irene station.

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!
