Quick visit to Braamfontein workshops

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?
