Today our timing was perfect. On arrival at Whites we were informed that a
train was coming in from the branch - blue 34 406. Also that another train
was coming. This turned out to be maroon 34 067 on the Welgelee and Virginia
- Glen harmony pick-up. Later we got one of Sheltam's 31's heading towards
the gold plant near Harmony.

Firstly we got 34 028 bringing empties to Wesselsbron silos. She left later
light loco to Kroonstad.
Then 34 499 returned from Tierfontein, there is no tri-angle at Tierfontein
to turn the loco around.
What is of interest is the new "Sy-skyf" branded Transnet. I have NO idea
what a sy-skyf is in English. I know years back when the trains ran without
guards they were black with a white circle on them - then they were called
"ore" - ears.
