||SAR Class 3E E215
||In 1947 and 1948 the South African Railways placed twenty-eight Class 3E electric locomotives with a Co+Co wheel arrangement in service. Designed by Metropolitan-Vickers and built by Robert Stephenson and Hawthorns, they were numbered in the range from E191 to E218. Unlike later electric locomotives that used separate steam heating wagons on passenger service, the Class 3E had an integral steam boiler for train heating. Provision was also made for electric heating of passenger coaches, although this feature was never used.
