PRASA Class Afro 4000 4001
Title:  PRASA Class Afro 4000 4001
Description:  Between November 2014 and April 2015 the first thirteen of twenty Class Afro 4000 diesel-electric locomotives for the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa came ashore in Table Bay Harbour. The locomotive was the first new engine to be acquired by PRASA since its establishment and is a Cape gauge version of the Euro 4000 that has been built for European railways since 2007 by Vossloh Rail Vehicles of Albuixech, Valencia. The Afro 4000 soon became controversial since it exceeds the maximum height limit of the South African loading gauge by nearly seven inches.
