SAR Class 6E1 E1264 (Series 2)
Title:  SAR Class 6E1 E1264 (Series 2)
Description:  In 1971 the South African Railways placed fifty Class 6E1, Series 2 electric locomotives in mainline service, numbered in the range from E1246 to E1295. It was designed and built by Union Carriage and Wagon in Nigel, Transvaal, with the electrical equipment supplied by the General Electric Company (GEC). Series 2 and all subsequent Class 6E1 series can be distinguished from Series 1 locomotives by their sandboxes that are not mounted on the bogies as before, but along the bottom edge of the locomotive body with the sandbox lids fitting into recesses in the body sides.
