Purple Class 35's

Photographed in Bloemfontein, freshly painted and serviced. Apparently these will be the only two painted in the purple Shosholoza Meyl livery.

Blue Train- Class 12E's

A number of people have asked me what happened to the class 12E locomotives since they no longer pull the Blue Train. A source had told me that they were staged at Koedoespoort. André Kritzinger photographed the 5 units parked on a siding. I had heard romours that the 5 would eventually be converted, similar to a class 18E. André always has his finger of the pulse!

Durban Station - the revamp.

This picture was taken last week of the refurbished Durban Station. When I was there in October, it was an ugly building site. The new look is wonderful and I hope to get more pictures of the completed station soon.
