Remarks & Notes 
Three newly refurbished RRL Grindrod Diesel Locomotives, bound for Ncala Mozambique, have just been loaded onto Transnet's Floating Crane "Indlovu Durban". The vessel collecting them for their journey to Mozambique was not equipped with a suitable crane for loading, hence the use of the floating crane. The three locos on board are (from left to right), Ex Kiwi Rail DQ6382 - now RRL 22-02, Ex SAR Class 35 - now RRL 35-07 and Ex Kiwi Rail DQ6347 - now RRL 22-01. RRL Grindrod completed the refurbishment of the two Kiwi Rail locos pretty quickly, as they only arrived in South Africa mid July 2013. For more in this series of photos of the loading of these locomotives please see - Photo Ids 451287, 451291, 451295, 451472, 497210 & 546103.
