SAR Class 5M Motor Coach (Type 5 L)
Title:  SAR Class 5M Motor Coach (Type 5 L)
Description:  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 5 coaches have two sets of sliding doors, with three windows between the two door sets and one window to the rear of the motor compartment. The passenger doors on this coach 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, 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).
