Remarks & Notes 
Day 1 of off loading! Wet, miserable and very smelly (fermenting / rotting fish meal) conditions for the unloading of these ex Queensland Railway diesel locomotives! Transnet Freight Rail imported the 34 locomotives. They arrived in Durban on the BBC Ohio and off loading began Friday, 17th October 2014 and it took three days to off load them. It is believed that 20 of the locomotives are for Transnet Engineering (the engineering / manufacturing division of Transnet Freight Rail). These 20 will be refurbished by them and then be marketed to other African countries (possibly the 20 X 2250 Class?). The remaining 14 (possibly the 14 X 2170 Class?) will be retained by TFR and deployed to work on the line between Bethlehem and Kroonstad.
