    Knowing my love for Electrics, that last time I and Val where with Robin and Letty

    He gave me 5 pictures of South Africa electric Locos.

    Now I hope Jimmy B will know somthing about these Locos, and be able to add to this thread.

    Here they are.

    The first photo has this info on the back

    That last one is a pretty strange beast - looks like a narrower gauge than 3ft 6 to me. 2 ft maybe? And is that a sort of 'passenger compartment' in the centre?
