||SAR Class 5M Motor Coach (Type 1 R)
||Metrorail commuter trains are usually made up of as many as 11 to 13 wagons, of which three are motor coaches, one at each end and the third in the middle of the train. The type 1 coaches were built with two sets of sliding doors with a conductor's periscope (since removed) and three windows between the two door sets. On this coach the passenger doors have been modified to run on exterior rails instead of into door cavities in the coach sides. To hide the upper door rails, fascias were added to the full length of the coach roof on both sides.SAR Class 5M2A, SAR Type N-26-M, Horsepower 1216, Length over headstocks 60' 3 5/8" (18.380m) or later models 60' 10 7/8" (18.564m), Height 12'0" (3.660m), Width 9'3" (2.820m).
