|The first ten of ninety-five 3 kV DC and 25 kV AC dual voltage Class 20E electric locomotives for Transnet Freight Rail were built in China in 2013 and 2014 by Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co., a subsidiary of the China South Locomotive and Rolling Stock Corporation (CSR), China's leading train manufacturer. The remaining eighty-five locomotives were built in South Africa by a consortium composed of CSR Zhuzhou and the South African Black Economic Empowerment company Matsetse Basadi. They are intended for service on the ore export line between Hotazel and Port Elizabeth and are numbered in the range from 20-001 to 20-095. Two of the units, numbers 20-031 and 20-032, were painted in a blue livery for service on the Nlue Train.
