Remarks & Notes 
Two of the few remaining Class 8E centre cab electric shunting locomotives (still in their wonderful SAR Red & Whisker livery), E8047 & E8086. Having managed to escape the cutting torch, they are pictured here in New Durban "A" Yard just north of Durban Station, with the Moses Mabhida Soccer Stadium, built for the 2010 Soccer World Cup in South Africa in 2010, as the backdrop.

The red & whisker livery of the South African Railways / Suid Afrikaanse Spoorwee collection. Getting harder to find examples of this fantastic and much loved livery still in service!
