Remarks & Notes 
Still in her original South African Railway livery (Red & Whiskers), E8092 is one of the shunting locomotives based at the Durban Metrorail Depot / Yard just north of Durban Station. She was having some time out this morning. Rumours have been around for a while now, that the future is pretty bleak for these Class 8E centre cab electric shunting locomotives, as spares are no longer available.

The red & whisker livery of the South African Railways / Suid Afrikaanse Spoorwee collection. Getting harder to find examples of this fantastic and much loved livery still in service!
