Some interesting vehicles seen at Braamfontein Rolling stock. Had heard of Casspir like vehicles having worked in the Apartheid era on the rails around the Reef. Later on I saw a picture of a similar vehicle which is plinthed at a railway Museum in Namibia. Was never able to locate or find out what happened to the reef armoured patrol vehicles. Until I was given these pictures. The vehicle is painted in Metrorail livery which was a surprise. So it has obviously seen action in recent years. Anybody got pictures of this vehicle around the Reef?
