Remarks & Notes 
A northbound freight behind a pair of 6E1's is held at Irene to allow a southbound Metrorail EMU from Pretoria to cross over from the Up Main to the Down Main loop for its scheduled station stop (the Up Main loop was blocked by another Metrorail train that had failed). E1520 is in original SAR red livery, complete with original oval numberplates on the body sides.
