Remarks & Notes 
The luxury Blue Train, northbound from Cape Town to Pretoria, is framed by the rusting footbridge at Fochville station as it speeds through behind a pair of class 14E Bo-Bo electrics. These locomotives are dual voltage 3kV DC / 25kV AC, allowing them to operate the entire route between Cape Town and Pretoria. Previously painted in Spoornet orange, this is only their second northbound run in their new blue livery, to match the colour and name of the famous train they are permanently allocated to.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
