Remarks & Notes 
This is EXX-3001 at sunrise, the first of three built by RRL Grindrod South Africa in Pretoria, for the Exxaro Mining Group, based in South Africa. They are to be used in the group's iron ore operations in Brazzaville, in the Republic of Congo. They arrived in Durban during Saturday night, 20th April 2013, having made their way down to Durban, from Pretoria via Swaziland, under their own power and were then loaded onto a ship for their journey on to the Congo.

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