SAR Class 5E1 E958 (Series 5)
Title:  SAR Class 5E1 E958 (Series 5)
Description:  Between 1966 and 1969 the South African Railways placed two hundred and twenty-five Class 5E1, Series 5 electric locomotives in service, numbered in the range from E921 to E1145. Designed by Metropolitan-Vickers, they were built by Union Carriage and Wagon in Nigel, with the electrical equipment supplied by Associated Electrical Industries and English Electric. The locomotive body design was changed from rounded corners to squared corners somewhere between the construction of number E941, still with rounded corners, and E948 which has squared corners.
