Many of these locos remain currently in service - this one was photographed last weekend pulling a freight train in the Johannesburg area.
The Class 6E1, Series 4 3 kV DC electric locomotive was designed and built in South Africa between 1973 and 1974.
They had sophisticated traction links...
For my sins I currently live in Johannesburg!
I enjoy trains - i have an interest in American loco's, make paper models (from time to time), and enjoy train photography - of any railway related subject, from electrics to steam, from railway people to "objects".
