SAR Class 5E E348 (Series 2)
Title:  SAR Class 5E E348 (Series 2)
Description:  In 1957 and 1958 the South African Railways placed forty-five Class 5E, Series 2 electric locomotives with a Bo-Bo wheel arrangement in main line service, numbered in the range from E319 to E363. The locomotives were ordered from English Electric, who subcontracted their building to Vulcan Foundry. The Class 5E gave a rough ride, which soon earned them the nickname balstamper.
